WEAR in the World Is Serengetee?

(It's A Dad Joke But I Promise It's For A Good Cause)

WEAR in the World Is Serengetee?
The Washington Press

Recently, I have been chosen to be a Spring Campus Representative for the company, Serengetee. You may be reading this article asking yourself, “What in the world is ‘Serengetee’?” Well, you should actually be asking yourself, “WHERE in the world is ‘Serengetee’?” If you’re into cute clothes and fabrics that serve an awesome mission, read on, friends, because I’m about to tell you about a great company that everyone should know about.

Two college friends, Jeff and Ryan, started Serengetee in 2012 after they had spent a Semester at Sea, travelling to countries in Africa, Asia, and Central America. They toured their way through several countries and markets, collecting unique fabrics from the local artisans. Although they had zero fashion experience and probably about $2 left in their pockets (since I totally relate to the whole poor college student lifestyle that they too endured), they started making pocket tees from their dorm rooms, highlighting each unique fabric from around the world.

Serengetee uses different, colorful fabrics from over 25 different countries, and in return, give back 10% of their profits to a number of different causes. For instance, the “Auki” fabric from Solomon Islands supports the Kilu’ufi Hospital, which serves and cures the artists’ community, while the “Metz” fabric from France supports the A21 Campaign, which seeks to end human trafficking through prevention, protection, and prosecution.

Each fabric has a different story: a different place they are from, a different cause they support, and a different means of assembly. Each fabric is unique, and you are able to add it to different clothes, accessories, and more, making it your own personal style, while wearing a part of the world.

Now I know you’re all thinking about my dad pun from the title of this article; I know it was bad. But do me a favor and think of me when you buy your awesome new bucket and cute new crop top and #WearTheWorld around the world and support great missions all at the same time.

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.

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.
