Over the years the Victoria Secret Fashion Show has changed in many ways. As the years pass by, and technology evolves, the show becomes about how many viewers it can bring in. I mean, yes, it was always about the ratings, but now more then ever, networks worry about numbers. The VS Fashion Show is no longer about just any model, but about models with famous last names with huge followings, who have had help getting their foot in the door. I don’t mean to discredit them, but it is a lot easier for them to be invited than for girls who nobody knows, and may be much better models.

Models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, are specific examples. We can’t deny that all three of these girls are absolutely stunning, but we also can’t deny that they are invited specifically because they come from famous families and bring in viewers. I remember watching the VS Fashion Show for the first time in 2008, and thinking Adriana Lima was the most beautiful model on earth. She also opened the show that year, and after that I made it my job to watch. She brought hope to many young girls who also came from foreign countries looking to model, and she also represented a sence of classiness whenever she was interviewed or spoke.

Luckily Adriana Lima is still a VS angel along with other long time models Lily Aldridge, and Alessandra Ambrosio, whom I love. Candice Swanepoel was definitely missed at the show this year, but I’m glad she skipped this year to focus on her baby, along with Behati Prinsloo. I hope the VS Fashion Show continues to promote diversity, but I also hope it opens the door for other young girls who wish to one day be the next Adriana Lima.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.
