Vaping is Not Cool

   Disclaimer – I’m going to remain anonymous to protect my well-being, especially since I’m not graduating any time soon. Also, despite this being an opinion piece, I don’t intend to slander anyone in particular, but rather use this opportunity to share some valuable information on this harmful, and potentially deadly practice.

What do you think of when you hear the word saint? Do you think of high-school? A football team? How about a public school logo? Yeah, I didn’t think so. When I think of a saint, I think of a ‘holy person’ depicted in Christianity who is supposedly ‘close to God’. So is our school logo promoting Christianity?

The “Troubled Teen” Industry

By Mona Urata

On September 14th, Paris Hilton, heiress and proto-influencer, released a documentary entitled “This is Paris” on YouTube, tackling her fame and the persona she has played for over 2 decades. However, at the heart of her documentary lies the trauma imprinted on her at Provo Canyon school when she was a teenager. Paris has paved the way for other victims to speak up about the abuse experienced at for-profit remote boarding schools known as the “troubled teen” industry.
