My Talk at the Washington Center

My trip to the RNC was eventful from start to finish. Just when I thought it was over — another story began. I boarded Delta 4071 to Atlanta, on my way back covering the Convention for MTV. Next to me was Julie Zimmerman, a Program Advisor, at The Washington Center. I began to tell her…

Anacostia’s Academy: Southeast Gets Smart

I love the twirl of the mouse after I hit “upload” on a Street Team story. It means, for just one second, I can relax and appreciate that I finished an assignment. Those seconds feel good!   Here is a quick update of what I have been working on the last few weeks. Coming off of…
