Dating in Atlanta

Dating in Atlanta has as many perks as it has downfalls. There are plenty of people to meet, numerous places to go, and endless opportunities. However, social media can have a negative impact on relationships, the ratio of men to women is absurdly unbalanced (20 to 1), and it seems like no one is ready to settle down. No matter what your relationship status is, be yourself, live your best life and be faithful (to yourself or your partner). Let’s discuss the pros and cons.

Avant-Youth is an Atlanta-based newsmagazine of the youth, devoted entirely to covering its residents and neighboring humans. We provide original reporting, retain editorial independence and collaborate with our readers to offer helpful, actionable news and information.

The hope? To achieve engaged citizenry early, because it’s messy out there.

Cancer Freaking Sucks — Taylor Carr Battles Breast Cancer at 21​

Being diagnosed with breast cancer at 20 would shake anyone. You’re not supposed to wonder whether you’ll live or die at that age.
This is why she initially shrugged off a noticeable lump in her left breast. ‘It will probably go away – maybe it’s a hormone thing,’ she thought. The “hormone thing” became painful though, and she couldn’t shrug it off any longer.

An Artist Portrait: R&B Singer Steffany Moneque

Sometimes you come across people who absolutely blow you away. Their presence alone takes over the atmosphere. Steffany Moneque is one of those people. When she walked into Ambient Studios for our interview, everyone took notice, and after our conversation, it is easy to see why.

A Great Year For Black Films

The 2010s were monumental for the progress of Black representation in movies. The efforts of countless Black actors and filmmakers, as well as trends like 2015’s “#oscarssoWhite” made Hollywood consider that maybe it wasn’t as inclusive as it once thought.

Pisces 2020 Horoscope (February 19 – March 20)

School lasts forever.

At least, that’s how it felt while I was stuck in the middle of it. Until one day (16 years later), it was over.
