The Monster Under the Bed

A little more than a year ago today, as I sat vigilantly at my post at Reynolds carrying out my oath as a student guard (the few, the proud) to protect the Georgetown community, I answered a call from my mom. Her tone was hurried and hushed. She was calling to let me know that…

If you could do it over again, would you choose Georgetown? I sat there staring at the question. “Well, it’s more nuanced than just ‘yes’ or ‘no,’” I thought. No, I wouldn’t. That sounds bad. Yes, I would. Well now I’m just appeasing the survey. No, I wouldn’t. I didn’t know how to answer. I…

Happiness is the idea an innocent child lives by; it’s the sound of the school bell ringing for recess, the smell of delicious chocolate chip cookies baking. Happiness is the color yellow and a warm fireplace in the winter. Whether it’s through ice cream or Mom’s hugs, happiness is real and present. But as we…

Each time I have the opportunity to pass by Healy Hall, I can’t help but think of how fortunate I am to be at an institution like Georgetown. I look at how magnificent the building is and often wonder whether I am living in reality or not. It just seems so surreal. But after the…

I am 12, or around that age, when my parents divorce without explanation. I tell myself it is simple: They just did not love each other anymore.

As a woman in science, I consider myself extraordinarily blessed by my upbringing. Throughout my childhood and early education, I never perceived any indication that women were less capable of science, that women did not have a place in science, or even that women were a minority in the field of science. In elementary school,…

When my grandfather was diagnosed with stomach cancer, my mother decided not to tell him. Instead, she told him he was having surgery for an ulcer. We went along with it until the pathology report showed that the cancer was not, as we had hoped, in its early stages, but that he would need further…

Would you rather be married or have a successful career? Be honest. Now imagine a typical female college student. She’s average height and has long hair. Her guilty pleasure is watching  Vampire Diaries and spending hours roaming the aisles at Target. She also, however, knows four languages, has a passion for international law, and is…
