“Everything you can imagine is real.” – Pablo Picasso
As social media lovers, we’re able to follow celebrities and other glamorous people on networks like Twitter and Instagram. Slowly, we start to realize a lot of the people we follow are successful: investors, musicians, models, etc. We even follow well-known people at our school. But you can’t help but get a little jealous of their lives, right?
I’ve heard students complain about how they have job interviews coming up and they aren't prepared. Many times, I ask them if they've visited the Career Resource Center on campus. That’s when I’m reminded of just how many students are unaware of UF's endless resources tailored to our needs.

It’s been about a month since classes started, and my energy levels are almost down to zero. I’m sure a lot of you are feeling the same way. From back-to-back classes, club meetings, interviews, studying and assignments, it’s hard for us Florida Gators to rejuvenate over the weekends when, of course, we are inundated with chapters to read.

As an Indian-American female, I frequently catch people off guard in conversations about career paths and aspirations when I tell them I’m a pre-law student majoring in finance.
We live in a world where beauty sells. Movies, magazines and social media revere beautiful people and younger generations stress over having a “hot” face and body. We all have our own idea of what we consider beautiful, but does our perception of beauty differ from that of other countries? I recently came across an interesting article called “See What Happens When a Woman Asks Photoshoppers in Different Countries to 'Make Her Beautiful'” by Nate Jones that highlighted an important point: the idea of beauty differs from culture to culture. What may be considered beautiful in the United States might not be beautiful in Morocco or Indonesia.
Have you ever wondered why people from certain regions of the world share a similar outlook on time?

In recent years, women’s empowerment has become a rising topic of interest amongst global leaders. Among these leaders are humanitarians and political representatives who have consistently traveled to developing and underdeveloped countries with the purpose of advocating for women’s rights. The primary focus of these leaders is to evoke positive change in societies where gender inequality and segregation are most prominent, like the Middle East. In a melting pot of political, economic and social instability, chance of reform seems unlikely to occur in the near future. Female leaders, such as Lubna Suliman Olavan and Manal-al Sharif, have addressed the need for women’s rights in the Middle East. It is important for western cultures like the United States to constantly encourage and support women in these cultures’ pursuit of independence and aid them in creating a peaceful environment to prosper in.
