I Want A Woman President, But Not This Woman.

The woman I imagined in the White House represented the best qualities in America, not the worst.

I Want A Woman President, But Not This Woman.

I know the election is a little bit of a sensitive subject, so before I start just a quick disclaimer! This is only my opinion, and if you don't agree with me that's fine. Just because we may have different opinions doesn't mean we can't be friends!

Like most millennials this is my first presidential election to vote in, and like most millennials I'm more then a little disappointed at how it's turned out. Over a year ago this election started out with hope and excitement, and now it's turned into doom and gloom. The idea of there being a female president is exciting and it's amazing to see how far women have come. However, I don't want Hillary Clinton to be that president. I'm sure some people think it's odd that I'm not voting for Clinton, because she is a woman and I'm a woman. After all that's the main reason people assume I would vote for her, but just because we are the same gender doesn't mean I can over look the things she has done.

When I was a little girl I thought about the first female president. Like most little girls I was looking forward to the day we could see a woman in the White House. The woman I imagined in the White House represented the best qualities of America. I did not imagine someone that in my opinion represents the worst qualities of America like corruption, lying, greed, and divisiveness. I definitely never imagined a female president that has been under not only one but two FBI investigations. Even if Hillary Clinton was to be elected there's a possibility she would be indited, and I am really not okay with a Tim Kaine presidency. Hillary Clinton lies nearly every time she opens her mouth, and when she gets caught she lies about lying. In case you want specific examples, here is a list of some of her greatest hits:

-Saying she was dead broke when she left the White House

-Denying her support for the Trans Pacific Partnership

-Claiming she "never received nor sent any material marked classified" on her private email server while she was Secretary of State

-Publicly blaming a you tube video for Benghazi

-Telling the FBI she turned over everything related to her emails

-Saying she never had her aides delete and wipe devices

-Claiming she was under sniper fire in Bosnia in 2008

Not only does she have a long laundry list of lies, but she has an impressive list of mysterious deaths related to her. Obviously none of these can be proven. However, if you want to get chills down your spine google these names and read the stories. Here's a list of 34 people who were linked to the Clinton's and mysteriously died:

Shawn Lucas, Victor Thorn, Joe Montano, Seth Rich, John Ashe, Gareth Williams, Charles Ruff, Carlos Ghigliotti, Charles Wilbourne Miller, Daniel Dutko, Lt. Gen. David J. McCloud, Johnny Lawhorn Jr., James McDougal, Eric Butera, Ron Miller, Mary Caitrin Mahoney, John Hillyer, Barbara Wise, Ron Brown, Charles Meissner, Stanley Huggins, Bill Shelton, Kathy Ferguson, James Bunch, Gandy Baugh, Ed Willey, Jerry Luther Parks, Dr. Stanley Heard, Jon Parnell Walker, Vince Foster, Jim Wilhite, C. Victor Raiser II, Montgomery Raiser, Susan Coleman

America has been waiting for a while to have a woman president, and this is the best we could do?

Now as I said in the beginning if you are a Clinton supporter that's fine by me, but I am tired of having to defend why I'm not a Clinton supporter. Your vote, your choice. However, the first time I vote for a woman for president it is going to be because they are the right candidate for the job, and that's my choice.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

These 10 Oversized Graphic Tees Are JUST As Cute As Urban Outfitters — And They're All Under $30

There is never a bad time to get some new oversized graphic tees, especially when they're all under $30.


While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
