Today, I met Carla and Rebecca at Carla’s house and we began working immediately. Rebecca and I added a new section to our prom story about transportation. We also looked over my garden story and my pictures that Regan had recently added. It looked really nice!

It’s exciting to think that my work at this internship could possibly help me make a career for myself in the future.

The prom will be held on Saturday, June 13th, from 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. at the Marriott Crystal Gateway in Crystal City. Tickets are currently on sale for $55.
Today I met James and Rebecca at Carla’s house. We immediately began setting up my Titan Talk blog and inserting my first two posts. Then Carla and James needed to spend time working on a big story, so Rebecca and I took some time to focus on a joint piece we were writing about T.C. Williams prom…
