Changing the Game for Girls in India

BY ISH JHAJ

Ish Jhaj was always a bit of a tomboy as a young girl, and football (the one you play with your foot) has always been her game. Now she's begun organizing a girls soccer program in a rural suburb of Punjab, India. What the girls lacked in coordination, they more than made up for in heart, and now Ish has put together several mini leagues, and has donated shoes and clothing to the region.

Improv Madness: Nightmares from My Childhood

BY KRISTINA MARTINEZ
@ VOL 17 ON APR 14, 2016

Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "Nightmares from My Childhood." Hilarity ensued.

Kristina Martinez, a native of Holland, had a hard time adapting to the cultural differences here Wisconsin. Holland, Michigan is quite literally another state; she likes to call it “the real mitten state.” (That’s okay, we all know better) A mild-mannered law librarian during the day, she turns into the Atlas Improve Company Manager at night---though sometimes it happens around 2:30 pm in the afternoon, so be careful around her.
