Every morning I wake up to multiple alarms as my eyes slowly open. I drag my body around the various aspects of my daily routine. Before I eat a morsel of food, I sit cross-legged on the floor and close me eyes. To many this may seem as a nap, but for me these 30 […]

Some of the most important people in my life are my family.  We have had some money hardships growing up, but we learned to be thankful for everything we had.  Before considering how to begin this essay I had to write out what twenty million dollars actually looked like.  It was hard to even imagine […]

Success is doing what makes you happy. No matter what you’re doing. If sitting on the street asking for change and digging through garbage makes you happy, then by George you are a successful bum!

It’s amazing to think that football, “The Sopranos,” a puddle of genes, and a couple dozen potlucks shaped who I am today. I’m what is called a “mixed plate” in Hawaiian pidgin – a person of mixed ancestry. In the same way a “mixed plate” is an assortment of tasty foods, I’m a mixture of […]

I grew up around the largest concentration of white poverty in the United States. My family comes from Central Appalachia in eastern Tennessee, a place that – despite the economic prowess of the United States – remains mired in poverty, lack of educational opportunity, and poor healthcare access. For many people in this region, success […]

I suppose to begin this you should know a few things about me: I grew up on a dairy farm in a small town Pennsylvania. As the youngest out of five, I was denied the much desired stereotypical status of the spoiled youngest child, and instead can be paralleled to Atlas with the dependency my […]
