First comes the introduction to my new class of BCM students; I’m Laura, 20,…

Poverty Porn: Liked just as much as the original?

    Okay so realistically defining the term “poverty” in all its complexity would probably take up and most likely extend the word limit I’ve been given for this blog. So, in its most basic form, poverty is basically the inability to meet one’s basic need due to a lack of money and resources and…
