I Am Many

I encourage you to write about yourself, even if it's just a few words.

I Am Many
Monica Galarza

One hashtag/ trend on Instagram that recently caught my attention was the "I Am Many" movement. Like many women across the nation, I feel empowered to tell the world who I am, and what I stand for. As much as I have complaints about my generation, I feel hopeful, and admire, that I'm part of one that is making an effort to have their voices heard, and proudly be who they are; without shame, or fear of repercussions.

It's a perfect time to have a movement of this nature, considering how often the President has been abusing his power, and pushing to eliminate any progress we've made prior to his presidency. It hasn't even been two years, yet it already feels like our country is regressing, and turning into a place of intolerance and oppression. With overt deceit, denial, and just plain stupidity, he has somehow managed to gain support by the equally, if not more, idiotic crowd.

Despite his meager attempts, there's a large portion of us who resist what he represents, and are fighting to preserve our rights. Any opportunity we have to make a difference –no matter how big or small –is a triumph, and should be embraced! I am many things, but I know I am NOT, and will never be, a Trump supporter.

"I Am Many" inspired me to write about myself. I encourage others to do the same. Every so often, it's healthy to reflect on our existence. I think I spend more time critiquing myself, rather than focusing on my better characteristics. So, I'll try to point out more good than bad in this post. This is not an exhaustive list, nor is it in any particular order. Without further ado, here are (some) of the many things I am:

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
