To The College I'm Transferring To

Please treat me well.

Brittany Sims

Dear Temple,

I have visited you two times already and I am already wishing I had more than 2 years with you. Not only is the school amazing, but the people, majors, food and atmosphere feel like home.

Please treat me well. Help me on my journey of achieving my dreams. I hope that not only do I enjoy my classes, but that I make friends, join clubs, maybe find love, and have the best 2 years of my life!

I am excited to start writing for your newspaper, exploring campus, and making amazing memories.

Although your campus is huge, and I get lost very easily, I know that I will find my way around after a month or so, just like any other place I get accustomed to.

This transfer process has been seamless, and I want to thank you for that. I hope everything else that I deal with at this campus is just as easy.

Not only do I get to still support my community college, but now I get to support and root for another school and get excited when someone talks about Temple. I am officially a Temple Owl and I can’t wait to be a proud alumni one day.

I am glad that I get to come here, know exactly what I am studying and doing, and don’t have to worry about the gen ed classes that I dreaded for the past two years.

The one thing I am apprehensive about is I am going to feel like a freshman again. I may get lost and don’t know all of the rules and have to get reacquainted to a new environment. I am scared about that a little, but like any other time, I know that will go away.

I hope to explore new places with new people and not regret one second of it. I may only be there for two years and not have the same college experience as other students, but I am going to make the most of the years I have.

Sometimes it is good to start over, get a fresh start, and make new and lasting memories.

Thank you for making me feel at home just from the brief visits.

Please treat me well!

I will see you in a few weeks!

Founders Of Color Q&A: Yarlap's MaryEllen Reider On Destigmatizing Women's Health

The father-daughter duo co-founded the brand and has since generated a passionate, dedicated community of women.

MaryEllen Reider

I was lucky enough to meet MaryEllen Reider over a decade ago as a fellow freshman in college. Since then, I had the luxury of being able to witness her evolution from the faithful companion I went to my first job fair with to the woman who is now a pioneer in destigmatizing the portrayal of women's reproductive health.

My favorite Editor was feeling under the weather yesterday. All I wanted was to make her a vegan iced matcha latte. With distance forbidding it, I instead decided to write up this quick, easy recipe. I made it to be vegan and organic for optimal health benefits.

Matcha green tea is made from grounded green tea leaf and it comes with the most antioxidant boost ever.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
