Column: Not enough, Lenoir

"Finding worms and undercooked meat being served at a dining hall accessible to UNC’s almost 20,000-person undergraduate population is disturbing, and not something one can just forget the next time they’re biting into Lenoir’s flavorless pineapple."

Column: Learning to open my eyes

"I don’t really know how to make sense of a world where people do unimaginable things. I don’t know where such violence and hatred comes from. I don’t know what the right way to respond to something like this is, or if there even is one."

Column: 'Gimme shelter'

"To the students here at UNC who intend to go into urban planning: you have so much potential to do good in this world, and I implore you to do what you can to transform housing from a commodity to a human right."

Column: Cardi B, we don't like it like that

Column: Google thinks I'm a bad writer (and other thoughts on data collection)

Technology is so deeply intertwined with our lives that our data is at greater risk than anyone else’s. We’re on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and so many other apps, and sharing so much of our day to day activities on them, while failing to consider how what we think is private information that can be used by these companies.

Column: Please, criticize journalists more

"Journalists hold a uniquely powerful position in society, and, as such, our mistakes can wreck lives. Criticism from the public is necessary to hold us accountable and to remind us that we, like everyone else, are fallible."
