VOX Stories

  • Lousy Labels

    Beware dreaded labels; they won't help you know someone

    When I told people about my Asperger’s, they would make fun of me or wouldn't believe me. The other day it happened to me again. I told some of my classmates about my diagnosis during lunch, and they laughed. When I told them that I was serious they continued to laugh and told me to stop playing around. The worst response is when I tell people and they immediately think they know everything about me because of some notion they had about all people with Asperger’s. Read More
  • HoPe: Breathe It, Live It, Love It

    Local organization helps Hispanic students find support through community

    Though born in Los Angeles, I was raised by my grandmother in Monterrey, Mexico. When I came to the United States at the age of 7, it wasn’t just the language and culture that startled me.

The percentage represents 18-24 million people who dwell inside the United States of America. This leaves the rest of the population either not addicted to sex, or not into it at all. Read More
  • The Blueprint

    My high school experience as a map to my future

    Halls that seemed so big four years ago seem so small now. From feeling like an ant in the school to standing over freshmen this year — my, have things changed. Four years ago, I used to think 2015 would never come. The thought of it being here is scary but exciting. A lot has changed, but one difference I can put my finger on is the maturity I have gained from freshman year to senior year. I have grown up in many ways, including my outlook on the world and the way I carry myself both in and out of school. Read More
