College: University of Missouri Major: Journalism  “Steve,” my mom stammered. “Have you seen our daughter’s Instagram?” My dad had not. “Clown College ’24” my new bio proudly read. Part of me needed a filler while waiting to hear back from universities while part of me ne...

College: Rice University Major: Economics "Mr. Furious.” My parents gave me that nickname when I was little for my intense stubbornness that never seemed to let up. Performing tasks conventionally wasn’t in my nature. My fastball always drifted to the left in little league, and I still hav...

College: The College of Charleston Majors: Business and Hospitality, with a minor in Historical Preservation A lot of people don’t know I have a sister. Eleanor, who we call El, is 6 years older than me. To top it off, little miss smarty pants skipped a grade, creating a seven-grade difference...

College: University of Missouri Major: Journalism & Spanish   At 10:15 p.m. my friends –– AKA the Core Four –– and I laugh as we wander through the Nashville Opryland Hotel in our PJs and matching hoodies. We are in search of Gatorade, but the hotel is like a jungle maze, with a w...

College: University of Missouri  Major: Journalism  Dear 2024 Emma, How are you doing? Things are pretty good right now (not counting the pandemic and all). I’m in our childhood bedroom and it’s a sunny day. A cool breeze is drifting through our open window while I’m sipping on warm tea ...

College: University of Missouri Majors: Strategic Communications and Marketing With all due respect, I never wanted to meet any of you. You’re scary, so scary that I cried when my parents told me I’d be spending the next four years with you in your school. They explained it was a great plac...

University of Missouri-Columbia  Major: Journalism and Computer Science  I used to get this feeling in my stomach back in sixth grade. This unbearable pain that would keep me up for hours just sitting on the toilet. But it wasn’t because I was sick. It was the feeling that in just a few short h...

Some say there are two types of people: those who embrace the future and those who fear it. My last four years at KHS have shown me that I’m most definitely the second type. As a freshman, the idea of ever being a senior seemed quite foreign to me. I saw my older brother graduate and felt as though...

Like every other freshman, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I walked into KHS on my first day of high school. Doing something new and different has never intimidated me and I already had a solid group of friends; I felt ready for high school. But high school is nothing like the movies, and I quickly ...

In high school you’re thrown into a world of decision-making in an attempt to find out what’s important to you. Go join those three clubs and attend nothing but the first meetings for them. Go to that TKC interview even though you're absolutely terrified. When they ask you what you could bring to...
