'The Bold Type' Is Fierce And Empowering

'The Bold Type' Is The Most Fierce And Empowering Show Out Right Now

If you love fashion, lifestyle, feminism, and NYC...than this show is perfect for you!


If you haven't already started watching "The Bold Type", then you probably should get on that...like right now!

This show is about four daring and empowered women who are best friends, and work at the magazine, "Scarlet", together. The three young independent women, Jane, Kat, and Sutton, deal with life challenges such as identity issues, fighting for what they believe, office scandals, and more while taking over NYC. The show gives the audience a glimpse of what it is like working for a magazine that aims so strongly to empower women, and touches on multiple on-going, real-life crises happening today that are relatable to many.

So, why do I love "The Bold Type" you might ask?

I am currently studying Communication and Media as my major, with a minor in Media in Culture. I love to write about lifestyle, edit photos and videos, and it is my absolute dream to work in New York City (basically the entirety of the show). My goal is to work in a creative environment whether it is writing for a magazine like Jane, or become a social media director like Kat in the show. This show is a sneak peek of what I see for myself in the future; working in New York City with people I can eventually call my best friends, in a space that is so fast-paced and creative, yet demanding and intimidating. These women are strong, independent, and have the cutest sense of style. Maybe one day I can figure out how to actually dress myself, but in the meantime, I'm just going to keep continue watching.

Once I became more comfortable and confident with my writing, it became my goal to work for a magazine in the city. It has, and still is, my goal to take over NYC strutting down the street to my incredibly cute and aesthetically pleasing office where I do something I love every day. Maybe I'm dreaming too big, who knows.

The media has always played a huge role in my life, and is something I want to dive into more and more each day. "The Bold Type" is an actual representation of what I see for myself in my future, and what I have been working so hard for every day until I graduate from college and immerse myself into the real world. The real-life issues that it centers on is incredibly relatable to many, and shines a light on topics some shows may be scared of talking about.

It promotes a space of comfort, acceptance, and understanding to viewers who may deal with similar issues.

This show is daring- is promotes women being empowered and coming together to help out other women in need, and stand for something bigger than itself. This show is about strength- going after what you want or else you will never have it. This show is love- being there for your best friends through thick and thin, no matter the situation.

If you haven't already started "The Bold Type", you absolutely should!

On June 22nd I Celebrated My 22nd

*Insert cliche Taylor Swift song "22"*


It's about time I turn 22. I've been told that after your 21st birthday, the years begin to fly past you in a blur. I don't know if I agree, but I can definitely say that I don't feel 22. Sometimes I look around at all the people who are freshmen in college, or juniors in high school, and I begin to reminisce about when I was their age. One thing getting older does do is make you a skeptical, cynical person.

I've thought a lot about my birthday as another day that I get to eat cake because let's face it, I'm not really here for anything else, except maybe a shot. I remember celebrating my birthday when I was younger was much different from what it turned into after I turned 20. Back in the day, I would celebrate my birthday with a pool party. Pizza, chips, cake, and soda. A few balloons and candles and that was it. I'd only invite my closest friends and we'd have so much fun.

I miss that kind of birthday. The kind you pick out an outfit for days prior, the kind you get so excited for and can't sleep, the kind that makes you feel special. It doesn't feel like that anymore. What it feels like now is, "welp, there goes another year." This line is also applicable to New Year's Eve, but we'll cross that bridge six months from now.

My birthday is pretty uneventful. It feels like the spark is gone, the excitement is gone. I wish I could feel happy that I'm turning 22, but I also know that it's just a reality that we all get older and things like birthdays begin to feel strange. You're faced to realize that you're supposed to have gained another year of experience and intelligence in the aspects of life, but it's almost like you feel the same.

It's safe to say that this has been a bit of an existential-crisis-themed birthday, but I'm just a little scared of getting older. I think we all reach a point where you realize you aren't invincible anymore. It's time to see what's in store for the future, what your career goals are, where you plan to move to after graduation, how to eat better, and how to feel like you've reached your full potential. It's a bittersweet moment in my life, but I'm ready to see what's next.

Poetry On Odyssey: The Light That Is Manhattan

A poem about anticipation.


Almost there.

The subway station is cold and narrow

But the staircase is just ahead.

No more corners, maps, or the like,

Just the light at the top of the stairs.

They say this city is filled with dreams.

Desires that may not even exist yet.

Dreams that have yet to be achieved,

or so the glow in front of me says.

The wonder builds as the ambiguous light at the top of the

Subway station stairs get brighter.

These steps are a two way street of

Excitement up

Fulfillment down.

May this light soon turn into

Roaring streets

Calm corners

Tranquil parks, and

dreams obtained.

The bright light I see in front of me is the glow of the city.

32 steps and I'm home.
