Ever since I was young, I always dreamed about having the ultimate best friend. Someone who liked all the things I liked, who was good at all the things I was good at, and who would always be around for me to hang out with. As I got older, I realized that what my younger self was after was to b...

Well, this is not how I thought I’d leave WCA. At the end of this year, I was supposed to have a fun, chill week with my teachers and friends. After this week, I was also supposed to have a track season, with rainy, early morning relays, hot afternoon practices, and personal best times under ...

My name is Isabella, and I have anxiety. This means that I often worry about little things, overanalyze everything, and begin to panic when I feel out of control. In everyday life, I manage pretty well; in fact, most people do not even know that I have anxiety.  But, when the national panic over COVID-19 ...
