News Never Sleeps (Even on a Holiday)

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

This past Monday was Independence Day, and it was my first time celebrating in Washington D.C. I'm actually surprised that I have never spent my 4th of July in the nation's capital (since I am from Maryland), but my family usually goes to places like Baltimore, Annapolis, Columbia and Fort George G. Meade to see the fireworks.  

The Opportunities Available to You

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

This past Sunday, I kicked off my week by heading to NBCUniversal to attend a live taping of "Meet The Press." What an incredible experience this was!    

I'm spending my TWC summer interning with Voice of America (VOA), a government-funded news source that provides reports on radio, TV and the Internet. I'm most passionate about broadcast journalism, so I work in the department that produces VOA60.
