Born Into Brothels
A powerful documentary about kids born to sex workers in Calcutta’s red light areas, Born Into Brothels is brave, inspiring, honest, and raw. I highly recommend watching it! I rewatched it last night, after a hiatus of two years, and it still made me cry, learn, and think.
My Tumblr rant got published! :)
So my post bitching about being an international student at Cal got published by the Human Journal! And the ASUC saw it and asked my permission to use it for a play for their showcase ‘Perspectives!’
If you’ve never heard of The Human Journal (I hadn’t either), it’s a fledgling publication that aims to “break down stereotypes by giving students the chance to share their side of the story.” Check out their Facebook page and if you go to Cal, you can get a free copy on the ground floor of Eshelmann hall! The stories and poems I’ve read so far have been refreshingly real and honest, plus they have a little Postsecret-type note card thing on every page which I really liked.
Okay time to haul my ass to a library and start cramming Biochem. Just so excited to see my name in print and wanted to share with you guys… It’s been a while since that happened because I never have the time or inclination to write in college :(
