Having a growth mindset is going into every situation means knowing that the worst thing that could happen is you fail and you learn from what you lost. This knowledge that you can find lessons even in hardship is one of the most important things that we as human and we as women need to learn. We need to be able to walk away from every situation knowing that we’ve learned and we’ve grown.

April 13, 2019 by Guest Student Author

Syd is one of three student poets who read at this year's poetry festival. Because the spacing is so important to this poem, and so as to ensure readers of our blog who use screen readers can enjoy it, we are publishing two versions here - the first as screen shots to show the proper spacing, the second typed in by hand so it may be machine read. Enjoy!

Kavanaugh's Plight

April 02, 2019 by Guest Student Author

Astrid Newton '23 is on the Teen Advisory Board for Miss Heard Media. This is her second post for them, published on March 11, 2019.


When one considers the complete history of the United States, women’s voices have only been heard for a fraction of the time that men’s have. We have only had the right to vote for less than a century. The women’s rights movement is making more progress all the time. However, many of the current government officials are attempting to prevent women having basic control over their bodies and feel safe in this country knowing responsible, moral people are running it. It has been this way for a long time, and many individuals contribute to it, but Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the a Supreme Court certainly isn’t helping. According to a poll, 63% of women oppose his confirmation to the Supreme Court. The political decisions he will make is undoubtedly going to cause an even further decrease in women’s rights for this country.
