Why Nicole Malliotakis Should Be The Next Mayor of NYC

She is literally the American dream, something we'd all love to achieve.

Why Nicole Malliotakis Should Be The Next Mayor of NYC
Luca Bravo

After watching the debate for NYC Mayor, I left with a feeling that Nicole Malliotakis should definitely be voted into office for mayor of NYC on November 7th. I know that New York is sold to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), but let me tell you why I believe she should be the Mayor of NYC.

If we follow the social-media-crazed Democrat logic:

She's a woman (which was enough for them to threaten about Hillary — "If you don't vote her in, you're sexist").

She's a first-generation American.

She's a minority; her mother is a Cuban exile from the Castro dictatorship.

So, automatically being that Democrats love minorities, immigrants and women, she should be voted into office as mayor.

But let me tell you why she's not, and why Democrats don't care about any of those things: because she is a Republican. But not only is she a Republican, she's one with a moral compass. A real human being. Something that we don't see every day.

For someone like myself, seeing Nicole Malliotakis on stage is an inspiration. I am a New Yorker, a woman, a first-generation American with immigrant parents just like her.

Now the actual logistics. First, she does not want to close Rikers Island. This is HUGE. Not only does Bill de Blasio want to close it, he is planning to open FOUR jails in the boroughs. Sorry, but to use taxpayer money to open FOUR NEW JAILS rather than just fixing whats broken already sounds atrocious.

Another reason I liked her is that she outright said that if she could ban lobbying, she would. Now, I know she isn't a genie that could just make my biggest wish come true, but for someone to have that sort of honesty — a politician no less! — seems unfathomable. Very rare. Almost like a unicorn. For some politicians, that's their bread and butter. No, I'm not going to name any right now so we can keep the focus on Nicole.

Nicole Malliotakis is not afraid to stand up to Bill de Blasio or Donald Trump or the DNC, which, for me, is completely empowering as they are all just signs of corruption and collusion.

Another important factor is that she wants to tackle the goddamn subway system, be it the delays or that we are all squished on top of each other with the rate of sexual harassment in there going up. A priority for her is the homeless crisis going on and, from my own anecdotal experience, it would be nice to clean up the streets and for them to get the help they need.

Lastly, another key effort Nicole pointed out is that she doesn't want NYC to be a sanctuary city. This is HUGE. Mayor De Blasio won't even comply with the federal government in releasing criminal records of illegal immigrants (including felonies)! I think everyone can agree that a murderer, rapist, or pedophile deserves to be deported back to their country. But to have a mayor who won't release the criminal records to the federal government is very scary.

Vote for Nicole Malliotakis as she is literally the American dream, something we'd all love to achieve. A politician who actually has morals and humanity left in her.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
