I was intrigued when I saw the ladies of the Muslim Student Association at a booth applying henna and informing students about their traditional headscarf, the hijab. Noticing my curiosity, I was greeted by the friendly faces of the MSA. They told me about the henna and asked if I was interested in wearing a hijab around for a day. I was elated. I have been interested...

Aw, another eventful Saturday night in the happening town of Bakersfield … not!

At 20 years old, I have never kissed, dated, cuddled, spooned, and definitely never done “it” with anyone. I know I’m not the only one:  Google “20 years old never been kissed.” For most of my teenage years, Valentine’s Day tormented me with visions of eternal bachelorhood.
