Song: “Good Days” by SZA

SZA took social media and the world by storm when she released a “Good Days,” a calming, uplifting single. The song is focused on letting go of occupations and stress of the past and looking to the future with a smile. The artist helps fans sing through their worries of past events, and encourages them to enjoy their present and look forward to what the future may hold for them. Rather than focusing on the past and youth that may not have served her well, SZA looks to accept a more peaceful future with open arms. -KC

Podcast: “The 8 Percent Club”

Started by four women-of-color law school prospects, “The 8 Percent Club” is dedicated to sharing experiences, tips and insider secrets to the law school admissions process. They are targeting the most underrepresented population in the legal industry: women of color. A nod to the actual statistic, “The 8 Percent Club” aims to encourage more WOC to consider a career in law to increase the number of WOC judges, lawyers, paralegals and law students. These women hope to increase diversity in the industry by establishing a scholarship fund for future women-of-color in law and by demystifying every step of the process from the LSAT to choosing a school. -KC
