Restore Our Shores

PROMPT: Environmental Journalism Competition 2020

    I shift in my chair, unsure how to properly sit in my black and white business dress. I came horrifyingly overdressed and other teens in shorts and t-shirts had met me with inquisitive, maybe even taunting looks, when I had arrived. I tried to draw as little attention to myself as possible, but the cracks in the boardwalk made it difficult to walk quietly in heels.

All staring at me
The new kid 
I make my way to the back 
So no...

Caught in the Middle

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019

In-between. That's the word I chose to describe myself in the essay portion of my college application. I spent nearly a month on that application and that's all I could come up with? Me? Zahara? The girl who was always writing and I couldn't come up with a better word?  

But I guess it wasn't exactly wrong though. No matter where life sent me it seemed that I was in-between two worlds or two situations. Even the day I was...
