Growing Up: The Transition From To Kill a Mockingbird to Go Set a Watchman

Emily Hay | July 31, 2015 | Teen
Go set a Watchman is about growing up and realizing that your own parents are no more than flawed human beings too, learning how to stand by your own values -- set your own watchman if you will -- and still be able to live alongside those you disagree with.

My Feminism Is Inclusive

Gabrielle Reed | July 29, 2015 | Teen
I have been that girl who felt as if feminism didn't offer me a shoulder to cry on when it came to me being a black young woman. My issues and my rights seemed second priority. I hated this, and for some time, I started to resent identifying as a feminist altogether. Until I found a new term to identify with.

7 Ways America Needs to Be More Like Germany

Sophie Roth-Douquet | July 28, 2015 | Teen
In Germany there are bakeries on practically every corner. I lived in Stuttgart, a pretty big city in the south of Germany where I could see three bakeries just by looking out the window and swiveling my head slightly.

This year, a generation of kids will be thrust into the long awaited but still unsettling age of puberty and turn to ABC Family for answers. While you enjoy your show, think about what that half hour is creating in our generation.

What I Learned From Orange is the New Black

Madonna Matta | July 24, 2015 | Teen
I have an unhealthy obsession with Netflix. That being said, I have an even unhealthier obsession over Orange is the New Black. I don't know if I should be proud or concerned when I say I finished the entire third season in one day but at least I can say OITNB taught me something significant in its third season.

How Young Adult Romance Novels Are Giving Young Girls a Misguided View of Romance: My Perspective as an 18-Year-Old High School Graduate

Amara Majeed | July 26, 2015 | Teen
Aside from my cynicism, it's very apparent to me that society's propagation of true, unconditional love is affecting the way young girls are approaching romantic relationships.

8 Things I Wish I Knew as a High School Freshman

Katelyn Darrow | July 23, 2015 | Teen
These four short years have shaped me more than I can comprehend. I remember being a freshman not that long ago. I scoured Seventeen magazine and implored my older sister for advice, but there were still quite a few things I wasn't prepared for when I started high school.

Julia Schemmer | July 22, 2015 | Teen
Completely desperate for a sliver of hope, I grabbed my Mac and spent three hours lying in my bed, listening to The 1975's self-titled album, where I discovered this simple yet powerful song.

"Hey Mama," We're in the 21st Century

Julia Schemmer | July 21, 2015 | Teen
While society has come impressively far in the last decade in the struggle for gender equality, something greatly impeding social progress is the continuation and encouragement of sexist songs seeping into the bloodline of humanity.

Being Present

Haley Pereyo | July 17, 2015 | Teen
I sweat the small stuff, big time. So to have a moment, where my mind and soul went "No, this is our moment. We can take some time for ourselves and it is okay," was mind blowing to me. Now that I've had this moment, I want to have more and I think that might be the most promising part of all of this.

Fifteen and (Formerly) Facebook-Free

Hannah Paridis | July 15, 2015 | Teen
Study distractions now consist of scrolling back to 2008 on an upperclassman's timeline or dubbing some guy's shirtless vacation pics as "thirst trap." I'm no exception, but the endless vortex of Facebook data didn't seem like the best place to start, because it never stops.

Why You Should Go to Camp for as Long as You Can

Jilly Rolnick | July 15, 2015 | Teen
I know a lot of my friends will be doing internships this summer, working odd jobs, going to summer school, or doing community service. They probably think I'm a little too old to be going away to summer camp to dress up in funny costumes and make friendship bracelets... again.
