I just wanted to thank you all so much for the gift. I was shocked and excited at the same time! I really appreciate you all for mentoring and teaching us to become better journalists.

I can’t wait to start up again in August!


I would just like to thank the Hampton Roads Black Media Professionals, INC. for selecting me to receive a scholarship this year. It really does mean a lot to me.
