Climate Anxiety, The Invisible Thorn of the Climate Crisis (Part 1)

"The teens who organize around the climate crisis work to tackle a global catastrophe that has yet to be solved. Alongside this strenuous and herculean feat, they go through the daily stressors of a teenager in the modern age: school, family, friends, etc. The intersection between the climate crisis and mental health crisis is apparent and its prevalence must be normalized. In partnership with Heads Up Teens, Youth Climate Action Team Inc (YCAT), a global youth climate movement, is working to highlight the notion of climate anxiety. Whether it be to give a name to a feeling that teens often face yet struggle to label or emphasizing that youth climate activists are not alone in their worries, we hope to drive change through this writing.

Not American Enough

"This article is written to let the young Asian American community know that they are not alone in their feelings of isolation, fear, and discrimination. It is recall of the shared experiences that many Asian Americans, like myself, have endured throughout our years in America. After the AAPI hate and awareness that has been spreading, I found it very important to not only voice my own feelings towards the situation but to reach other people as well. It is important to come together during times like this, especially when the Asian community has been silenced for so long. "
