Comments Off on “Culture” By Mahika Deshpande

What defines culture? Some say It’s your religion What you believe in What you celebrate But To me Culture is family The food we cook up Spicy and flavorful Fried or syrupy Messy but delicious Like the jalebi we have on Diwali Or the pani puri we make at home It’s the traditions we keep How we […]

Comments Off on “Culture and the World” By David Moon

People from different worlds. From miles away but still on Earth. Different race and different identity. But does it matter?

Comments Off on “Deeper Roots” By Charlotte Anderson

“Born here, raised here.” They say as eyes turn to me “Oh, um not I” I reply cautiously “Then where are you from?” “Well I was born in California and I’m American But some of my ancestors and relatives are from parts of Europe.” I try, sounding enthusiastic “So… you don’t really know?” They ask […]
