This year, The Trevor Project conducted a “National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health.” Of the 34,000 kids surveyed, two out of three report “someone tried to convince them to change their sexual orientation or gender identity.” That being said, any attempt to repress or change someone’s sexual or gender identity is emotionally traumatizing and overwhelmingly ineffective.
The University of South Carolina preaches a “Stigma Free USC” when it comes to mental health, but the ongoing presence of anxiety and depression on campus proves that we have a long way to go. The problem is that the university’s mental health programs seem to focus on fixing existing problems rather than preventing them.
College makes burnout almost unavoidable. Characterized by “cynicism, depression, and lethargy,” burnout is the “state of emotional, mental, and often physical exhaustion brought on by prolonged or repeated stress.” It isn’t simply stress, it is the combination of expecting too much of yourself, feeling like your work isn’t good enough and feeling inadequate or incompetent.

A lot of people expect you to know where you're going, especially when you're entering college or a new phase in life. From around the age of 17, we are all supposed to know who we are, what we want to do and how we are going to do it. That is highly unrealistic.
Recently, USC’s new president Bob Caslen said, “If you're going to be an effective leader, you have to have the humility to listen and to understand across the entire spectrum of thought,” and with his newfound position at the university, I hope he truly does have humility.
South Carolina is one of the only states that still does not allow the promotion of homosexuality in a classroom setting, and while that isn’t something that is strongly enforced, it is definitely something I wish I knew about before coming to USC.

Every June, more companies come out with Pride campaigns. From social media to granola bars, it seems like everyone thinks being gay is something they can capitalize on without actually supporting.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Since then, there have been a lot of milestones for the LGBTQ+ community, but there are still many things that make it scary and dangerous for people to come out.
Pride is not a party for you to crash.
College students are not OK.
Started in early 2018, March For Our Lives is an activist organization led by students and survivors of the Parkland, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who advocate for gun reform in America. Last year, the march was one for the history books, but the same cannot be said for 2019.
