Growing up as a young woman means that you are constantly on display. Everywhere you go — at school, at the grocery store, at volleyball practice, at church, at the pool, even at home — you are always open to critique, comments or questioning related to your body.

The art of scamming has been fascinating to me ever since the term “influencer” came to light. A scam can take many forms: It can be as simple as knowing how to get a free drink at a bar or as complex as manipulating financiers and loan companies into lending you money that doesn’t exist and buying Macaulay Culkin dinner to convince him that you’re German royalty. We live in a time when the internet provides anonymity at extreme consequences.

Over the recent holiday, I attended an event as part of the 2019 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Symposium at the University of Michigan. I heard about the harsh experiences three women faced as they participated in a student-led committee to confront racism in the South during the 1960s. Someone asked how the civil rights movement became as powerful as it was, and one woman reasoned that the might of those oppressed during that time period was aligned with the spirit of the youth.

Culture shock.

For the first time in my life, I finally knew and felt what those two words really meant. As I walked into that lecture hall in the Chemistry Building on the first day of my freshman orientation, I felt like an alien. I desperately looked around the packed auditorium to find another person of color, to find someone even remotely like me, even if it were just in our shared feeling of being different.

As a born and raised Ann Arborite, I’ve always known climate change to be real. It’s not up for debate in our school system. It’s acknowledged by our political leaders. And it's even acted upon by citizen and government alike. However, the sense of urgency I’ve felt in my 20 years on this planet is nowhere near an acceptable level of effort when it comes to taking action on climate. It’s as though we’ve patted ourselves on the back for choosing to care.

During the 2018 college football season, Michigan Stadium drew an average crowd of 110,737 fans per game. That’s a lot of folks in maize and blue, and a greater number than Donald Trump’s 2016 combined margin of victory — a razor thin 77,744 Republican-cast ballots — in the key swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
