Beyoncé Will 'Do Whatever It Takes' To Help Houston After Hurricane Harvey


Many celebrities have taken action to donate to the recent effects of Hurricane Harvey in the southern Texas areas, specifically Houston. The challenge was created by Kevin Hart to encourage A-list celebs, as well as anyone else who can, to donate to the cause. Many celebrities accepted the challenge by donating hundreds of thousands of dollars, but there was one A-list celeb that everyone was waiting to hear from...BEYONCÉ!

The Houston native and pop music sensation has been known for her tremendous humanitarian efforts, which is why the world was awaiting her response to the recent flooding in her hometown. The wait is now over.

Queen Bey's philanthropic initiative, BeyGOOD, released a statement on Monday, August 28 stating that Beyoncé will "help as many as she can," in the Houston area. As an individual, Beyoncé has pledged to do whatever it takes in order to ensure the well being of those impacted by the historic flooding in her hometown.

It did not come as a shock that Beyoncé would take a stand for her hometown, for she has done it countless times before. Beyoncé and BeyGOOD not only help her hometown, but cities and countries around the world suffering from catastrophic events. For instance, BeyGOOD has raised over $80,000 for relief efforts regarding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Also, Beyoncé recently donated $7,000,000 to the housing of homeless people residing in her hometown of Houston, Texas. YAS QUEEN!

The question was not if she would help, but more so how she will provide assistance to the city. Beyonce released a statement to The Houston Chronicle stating, "My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help ... I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor [Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston] to implement a plan to help as many as we can.” We know that, with these plans in the works, we can expect to see millions pour into the city of Houston with Beyonce's help. Proving that, once again, she is Queen.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
