What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.

Newspaper

Hey, you: Pick up a paper! It never hurts to stray away from the blue glare of your smartphone and flip through a paper. I can definitely attest to this. From managing “The Moon Valley Tattler” to DC Ranch’s “Ranch News,” community newspapers weirdly became my niche.

I now have a monthly column called “Rookie Mom” that explores my neuroses and completely blind journey as a first-time mother in the Moon Valley community in North Phoenix. I sincerely being a voice in my community that’s being revamped by folks of my generation. I know that if I were lounging around a coffee shop to pick up a local paper, I’d be happy to read a relatable voice with an uncensored voice. And that’s my vibe.
