Silent Memories

2018-12-03T14:55:06+00:00

By Alejandra Chamorro It was 80 degrees outside, the sky was clear and I was mentally preparing myself to walk 20 minutes under the blazing sun.

2018-12-03T14:56:09+00:00

By Maria Gil When I set foot into my first journalism class in the Fall of 2015, I only had one thought: I am not going to be a journalist. I am here because my parents persuaded me against getting an English degree. I was going to become a storyteller, not a reporter. I, the [...]

2018-11-28T17:17:41+00:00

I walked into the National Cathedral and found a seat on the left shoulder, having arrived too late for a center seat.
