If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor' - Desmund Tutu
During my A-levels, I had a AS Maths module that I was greatly struggling with. After a dispassionate attempt in my mock set a month before my real exam, I achieved a whopping 3/72 (That's a U grade, Unmarkable, if you're wondering) which I completely deserved since I had understood virtually nothing all year. I've always been excellent at Maths, but the teacher I had just didn't click with me and I consider myself a hard-working individual but for the first time, I was stumped. Something had to change, and fast.

The coronavirus lockdown has made us find alternatives to gyms and exercise classes in order to stay fit and healthy whilst we're inside all day. However I must confess, I hate home workouts. I've given them a real try but find them miserable, gruelling and I just feel worse after. If this sounds like you, I thoroughly recommend yoga as an alternative.
Never Have I Ever features an American high school student Devi Vishwakumar ( Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) who had a tragic first year and is trying her best to move on forward. This involved the death of her father, losing the ability to use her legs and generally becoming a social outcast with an overbearing mother breathing down her neck the whole time. She's volatile, foul-mouthed, horny, confused and emotional. So basically, a normal teenager.
When I was just 10 years old, I used the skin whitening facial cream ‘Fair and Lovely’ with the hope that I would finally be beautiful when my skin was lighter. By high school, I was convinced that boys would never like me because I was too dark. Whilst most girls were busy worrying about being too fat, I was worried about the colour of skin I was born in. What a waste of time.
