I just googled “college christmas trees” and I found some gems that needed to be shared
and my personal favorite
The last one! Oh my God- I can picture the guys that used to live downstairs from me freshmen year gathering around that singing “Oh Christmas Tree.”
I want to be the next Greg Packer when I grow up.

I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.

Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mom of two, held a dance party with her medical team in the operating room of Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco."
