Russia invaded Ukraine Feb. 24, 2022 — although the Russo-Ukrainian war was informally started in 2014. Heres what you need to know, almost 7 months later. I think this issue is still relevant, and we should continue to raise awareness about the ongoing war, Model UN President sophomore Anisha Mandem said. Although the topic is not being discussed as much in mainstream media, the effects of the war have led to a change in the lifestyle of the people in Ukraine. Especially now that Ukraine is fighting back and may potentially win the war, I think it is important to stay up to date on these current issues. Graphic courtesy of Canva.

Students on the Prosper Speech and Debate team competed this past weekend at Princeton High School. Junior Kaya Miller placed 3rd in congressional debate, President and junior James Kim placed 7th in congressional debate, and sophomore Erica Smith placed 5th in Prose Interpretation. Debate is a creative outlet for me where I can express my thoughts and challenge myself to have meaningful conversations about topics foreign to me, Kim said. My favorite part about the Princeton tournament and essentially every tournament are the people I am able to meet through competing. I still keep in contact with them and we exchange ideas over our shared hobby of debate. Debate students are somewhat like-minded so it’s just a great opportunity to meet people you can bond with.
