How to be an Ally in a Time of Fear

Nick Nelson – Alexandria, VA

For many of us, this has been a rough couple of weeks.The election didn’t go the way many of us expected, and even more of us had hoped. The decisions of the electoral college left many in fear, and the actions of some unfortunate folks in this country have left far too many people afraid for their lives and freedom to live as a member of their respective cultures.

Therapy: A Personal Maintenance Check

By Jamie Schafer – White Hall, MD

It’s hard to convey to someone why they need something, especially when it’s something that heals internally with difficult to see progress. Therapy has such a negative connotation as is, trying to convince someone it will help often falls on deaf ears before a point can even be made.

I’ve been in and out of therapy since I was a toddler – so for me, therapy is normal. It’s like going for an emotional check-up whenever I need it. Friend issues, anxiety, daddy drama, financial stressors, over-thinking and crazy-double-life ex-boyfriend are just some of the topics I’ve discussed.

By Lauren Linhard – moxie.lauren@gmail.com

Our favorite fairytale characters found their way into our hearts by overcoming evil queens, fighting dragons and outsmarting a big bad wolf. But what would “once upon a time” look like if such fantasy obstacles were replaced with challenges found in the real world?

Amateur film director Angie Kupper, 28, answers that question in her upcoming documentary “Finding Your Fairytale,” a film that tells the story of 13 modern-day fairytales and how they found their happily ever after. Continue reading “Documentary creates modern fairytale of real-world struggles”

New Kid in the Cubicle: Reflections On Entering the Wonky Workforce

By Alexis Cheney – @Alexis-Cheney

I started my first full-time job as a paralegal in the Department of Justice a little more than two months ago. After graduating from college, I spent months anticipating the monumental debut of my professional career. What exact projects would I work on? Who would be my colleagues? What would my office look like? A host of unknowns flickered vaguely in the distance until they blinded me when I walked through the office door on my first day.

Sexual Assault Remains Concern for College Students

By Elaine Moradi – Moxie Intern

When Ali (last name omitted for safety reasons) started college at Johns Hopkins University, all that was on her mind was if she’d get along with her roommate and what clubs she would join. But among the back-to-school notebooks and pens on her shopping list, her father had added pepper spray, written in red pen, to the list. He was thinking about what many forget – college-age women are three times more likely to experience sexual violence. Continue reading “Sexual Assault Remains Concern for College Students”
