Investment 101: Determining Your Investment Portfolio

Chloe L., journalist

An investment portfolio is a collection of your financial investments. For simplicity’s sake, I will limit it to stocks and bonds. Stocks are the more riskier option, but offer the highest possible return for your money, while bonds are a safer form of investment that usually have lower interest rates (meaning a lower return).

Diane K., journalist

Since the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, tourism in Taiwan has stalled because of strict border restrictions. However, the Taiwanese government recently announced that it will lift its border restrictions starting Oct. 13. Because I have been traveling around Taiwan for the past few months, I’ve decided to introduce a few of the most popular tourist attractions in Taiwan, starting with Taipei.

A Junior-Senior Class Trip for the Ages

They came from as far north as Canada and as far south as Chile. Travelers arrived by plane, car, train, and even bus. In April, during GWUOHS’ spring break, 24 juniors and seniors, along with three staff chaperones, took over Orlando for the week. Students who had only met each other in live class sessions or chatted on Skype were introduced at the airport or the hotel lobby. It took all of five minutes for many to connect and find lots in common.

GWUOHS KIND Campaign Assembly

Julian-Alexandre W., journalist

Just last month, on Feb. 23 , GWUOHS had its very first KIND Campaign Assembly–big kudos to the Women’s Empowerment Club for hosting this event to promote girl-on-girl bullying awareness. This movement has grown as very popular forms of bullying amongst females such as indirect bullying, have grown to account for nearly 18% of all cases of bullying. Moreover, since the COVID-19 pandemic, the new popularity in online schooling, and a general increase in online activity, cyberbullying has risen dramatically. In a 2021 national representative sample, 23.7% of females in a 2,546-person sample, between the ages of 13 and 17, faced some sort of cyberbullying to their respective gender category. The issue of girl-on-girl bullying is widespread and non-exclusive to our school environment. Here is my interview with Danielle Chan, from the Women’s Empowerment Club and the GW Chronicle, to give more
insight into the GWUOHS KIND Campaign Assembly!
