Because they are natural connectors, it's important that introverts feel a part of something greater than themselves. They love creating community and connecting people together with aligned opportunities so everyone benefits. They create a natural win-win, collaborative opportunities for everyone involved.

I Am Girl Rising

Our world is incredibly global and if one girl in India is set on an upward trajectory of education, employment, as well as financial and personal fulfillment, she can transform the trajectories of those after her.

You might never be a size 2 (or even a size 6 or 8). But if you make taking great care of yourself a priority, you're going to look and feel better, and that's going to fuel all kinds of positive changes in how you approach your life.

Forever Gutless, Forever Grateful

As a performer, all I want to do is give back to the world. Being up on stage and singing is one part of the joy, but what brings the process full circle is knowing that somewhere in the audience, I am affecting someone and making them think in a different way.

Amy Oestreicher | Posted 12.12.2016 | College
Amy Oestreicher

Three years ago, when I was 25 and a newly-enrolled college freshman (yes, you read that right), it was obvious that I was not your typical 18-year-old carrying a sheaf of spiral notebooks and fresh set of pens on her first day of classes. But I don't really have your typical life story either.

Matthew B. James, Ph.D.

It's true that most of our barriers are self-imposed and many of our fears are "False Evidence Appearing Real." But to me, staying in fear as you try to do what you're afraid of is like riding the waves on a skate board. It might kinda work -- but you're definitely surfing at a disadvantage!

The Problem With Television Isn't the LBT, It's the G.

We can't cry out for representation and then spit on it when it arrives. We can't lap up other shows dealing with our cohort's problems and lives and stamp on our own because we feel like we've been given the short straw.

In Defense of Spray Tanning and Loving Yourself

Recently, I did one thing that it seems that millennial women hate to admit: I got a spray tan. I came into this whole process with the idea that I was going to be able to laugh at myself for getting a spray tan. I really wanted to believe that I was above it.

What all children truly yearn for goes much deeper. It doesn't involve fancy clothes, the latest electronics, pricey trips, or even a high-brow education. Every child wants to know three things.

Coding is how technology, including software, apps and websites, is created. There are thousands of coding languages, such as JavaScript, Python and SQL, and early exposure helps young people understand and interact with the devices that provide the means to shape our technology-driven culture.

Empowerment Through Parenting for People With Disabilities

Christinne Rudd | Posted 08.24.2016 | Parents
Christinne Rudd

While there's still plenty of room for things like sensitivity toward parents who are disabled, and more information needing to be disseminated to professionals that come into contact with parents who have a disability, I can say that I've seen some small strides being made. It's possible, with a few modifications, to be an active parent in your child's life, and not sit on the sidelines.

I'm a Gay Man And I Love When Women Say To Me, 'Let's Go Shopping!'

JD Stewart | Posted 08.18.2016 | Queer Voices
JD Stewart

I like that women think it's okay to make me go shopping with them. To ask about their dress and if it looks nice. To let their wrists fall limper when I'm not so keen on it. I like men who hide themselves in changing rooms because my eyes may "make them gay." I love it all.

Most of my friends don't believe this, but my childhood friends know. Growing up, I was a nerd. I was shy, teacher's pet, valedictorian in elementary school, terrified of boys; and I was most comfortable when I had my nose in a book.

You can't blame the beard for wanting to be included in the fun of body hair color and adornment. Body hair is body hair, after all, and we live in an age of anything goes.
