By Hannah Wren. Ms. Wren is a senior at Burlingame High School. She is on the board of the Teen Federation, North Bay, and a participant in Write On for Israel.
I am a senior at Burlingame High School, but I could be a senior at any American high school. I am beginning the college application process. And I am scared. I am scared, but not for the reason that you might assume.
Most incoming college students are worried about having an awful roommate, missing their friends and family, or not being able to keep up with a challenging academic workload. However, these are the least of my fears.
I am scared because of the false propaganda and bullying — yes, bullying — taking place on college campuses nationwide over the Israeli–Palestinian/Arab conflict.
