Miss America, Kira Kazantsev, is Spreading a Powerful Message Across College Campuses

Miss America is about to embark on a tour of college campuses that will allow her to share an important message with students that has nothing to do with red cups.

Miss America, Kira Kazantsev of New York, first made waves during the talent portion of the competition. Eschewing pageant norms, she plopped down cross-legged on stage and sang Pharrell’s “Happy.” All while accompanying herself on a red Solo cup a la “Pitch Perfect.” Clearly her talent did nothing but help her, since Kazantsev was crowned Miss America 2015 later in the evening.

Now she’s ready to move on past all the talk about a cup and move on to more serious issues, namely awareness of the issues surrounding domestic violence. Just a few days after being crowned, Kazantsev spoke about her own experience as a victim of domestic violence. Now she’s using her experience to help prevent others from landing themselves in similar situations.

In an interview on HuffPost Live Kazantsev said, “Women need to know how they should be treated. Women need to know what healthy relationships are, and as Miss America I hope to educate women. I hope to raise awareness on what that healthy relationship is because I didn’t know. That’s what happened with me – I just didn’t understand.”

As part of her duties as Miss America, Kazantsev will visit several college campuses to share her story and what can be learned from it.

Valentine’s Day is Over. What Now?

Valentine’s Day has passed once again, and whether you felt the bliss of young love or celebrated another Single’s Awareness day, you’re likely feeling a bit of a Valentine’s slump. With all the hype and expectations that come along with the holiday, it’s no wonder we all feel a bit of a letdown once it has passed.


Whether you want to keep the romance alive until next year, or are rocking the single life, we’ve got tips on how to make the most of life until next year other than bingeing on half-price chocolate.


DO: Make time to specifically spend together
Make Saturdays movie day, set aside a couple nights a month to make dinner together, or find your own activity. No matter your interests as a couple, be sure to find time to do them together.

DON’T: Exclude your friends: single or in couples
It can be easy once you’ve found happiness in a relationship to get wrapped up in your own world. However, leaving people out will hurt everyone involved in the long run. Keep up your friendships, and make sure that you still have time to spend as individuals.

DO: What is right for you
If you’re blissfully in love and everything is great, then revel in it. If, however, things aren’t going so well, don’t feel like you have to stay in a relationship that isn’t working just for the sake of being in a relationship. Love is complicated, and no one has it all figured out. Ultimately, you need to be happy.

Single and Loving It

DO: Make the most of your single status
Get out and meet people, take up a hobby you’ve always been interested in, or take yourself out to dinner. You’re single, not dead, so go out and have fun!

DON’T: Get down on the idea of love
So what if you’re unattached right now? That doesn’t mean all hope is lost, and it certainly doesn’t prevent you from experiencing other kinds of love, like friendship and family.

DO: Whatever makes you happy
If you’re loving life, keep up whatever you’re doing, if not, change it up. A lot of people will try to tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing, but ultimately it comes down to what you want. If you want a relationship, then pursue one. If not, that’s great too.

How to Find Love on a College Campus

couple loveHow many popular chick-flicks today focus on a happy couple meeting in college, falling in love, and living happily ever after? I have to admit, the majority of my favorite movies have this exact plot line. So, is it any wonder that many students come to college expecting to learn the skills for their future jobs, have a lot of fun, and meet the person of their dreams?

Unfortunately, finding love on a college campus is a little harder than they show on the cinema screen. However, it is not impossible. Follow these tips to find love on a college campus.

Look for love in the right places. Sure, you might meet someone special in a bar, but what are you likely to have in common (except a shared love of tequila, perhaps)? Instead, try to look for someone who shares a similar interest with you. You could join a club or an organization on campus whose members share a passion. If you meet someone in this setting, you will have something to talk about besides which alcohol tastes the best mixed with Coke. Read the rest of this entry »
