It’s that time of year again. When I woke up this morning and checked my TimeHop, I was reminded of The Washington Journalism and Media Conference (WJMC). Three years ago today, I went to a conference that completely changed my life.
A couple of weeks ago a good friend of mine, and former alumni of The Washington Journalism and Media Conference, approached me about doing a collaborative blog post on the controversy which is #gamergate. When he first mentioned this, I had never heard of it before and began to research what it was and how… Read More #Gamergate with guest, Dallas Satterfield
When I logged onto my account today, WordPress notified me of blogging with them for one year now. I can’t believe that it has been an entire year since I made my first post on this blog. So much has happened to me since then and I have had the opportunity to meet so many… Read More Happy Holidays!
My wake up call this morning was later than yesterday. We were off to GMU’s Arlington, VA location to listen to Brian Lamb speak about his company, C-SPAN. Instead of taking a speech approach, he, instead, decided to engage with the audience. It was very interesting to hear my peers’ responses to his hard questions.I… Read More Hoda Kotb & Brian Lamb

A museum about the history… Read More #REDisRAD

I cannot believe that The Washington Journalism and Media Conference is almost here! Time has flown by as my awesome aunts finished fundraising, school wrapped up, and my summer began. Now, I am finishing my final preparations for DC in TWO DAYS! (I’m just a little excited if you can’t tell.) I’m excited to announce… Read More Getting Ready for WJMC!
Over just a month my two dedicated Aunts helped to raise over $2100.00 in support of the conference. Not only did they work hard to bake goodies and convince friends to donate, but they also live on the other side of the world—in Australia! I am forever grateful for their hard work and amazing devotion… Read More Thank You!
