The Modeling Industry Has Become More Inclusive, But The Box To Enter Is Still Small

The modeling industry has become more inclusive, but only if you fit the requirements. Models still have to be tall to do most commercial shoots.

What Everyone Is Getting Wrong About Being ‘Woke’

Last year, I was known by the majority of my grade as the ‘alt-left, anti-Trump, radical feminist’ student. I had the loudest, most radical opinions about politics and I never thought twice about sharing it. People either felt intimidated, inspired, or annoyed by my actions. And frankly, I was proud of it.
