NAHJ DC will be assisting one student interning in Washington, D.C. during the Fall semester. Our chapter has selected Blanca Bejarano as our fall Charlie Ericksen Internship Supplement Recipient and she will be awarded $200 for a metro card and $45 for NAHJ Student Membership. Many thanks to our members for helping us raise the funds and support young journalism talent!
Blanca Bejarano is currently a senior at the University of Maryland, College Park, pursuing her undergraduate degree in communications and Spanish language, literatures, and culture. She has been actively involved in the Latino-interest newspaper at her university, La Voz Latina, serving as editor-in-chief, and has carried out the VP role of public relations and fundraising as a sister for the Upsilon chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. Since her junior year she has interned at the public affairs firm Dewey Square Group in Washington D.C. in the Latino strategies practice area, “Latinovations.”
We are proud of everything this chapter has achieved and look forward to building more memories together in the DC metro area.
Here is a video produced by our wonderful member Marisa Arbona-Ruiz and shot by Franklin Garcia that shows what NAHJ DC is all about.
Thanks for being a part of our family!
