Column: Meet your new opinion editor

"I’m honored to serve as The Daily Tar Heel’s opinion editor for the 2020-21 year. To me, the opinion page is the heart of the community, a place where we can have important discussions about issues relevant to UNC and the larger Chapel Hill population. These conversations, however difficult they may be, are critical as we determine how to move forward as a desk, as a newsroom and as a community."

"The road to self-acceptance is a long one. In fact, I’m not sure if it ever really ends. The only thing I do know is this: my struggles explain me, but they don’t define me. And I think I’m OK with that."


Column: Self-care is not self-indulgent

Self-care is more than spa days and expensive skincare routines. In reality, the definition of self-care is remarkably fluid. It’s whatever you want or need it to be, and it doesn’t have to cost anything at all.
