Over a decade ago, I was a Radio Rookie myself. A lot has happened since then -- high school, college, and various jobs -- but I recently found myself drawn back to radio as an intern. Throughout the last few months, I have had the opportunity to help lead the Short Wave multimedia workshop, an after school program held in two high schools in lower Manhattan.

In November, Radio Rookies took part in the Mozilla Festival -- in London! The festival is all about teaching everyone to be a webmaker. Presenters come to show off their own hard work but are also there to teach young people and educators their skills. People have the chance to actually use the tools they learn to make things there at Moz Fest.

I was shocked to hear about what happened to Trayvon Martin, but I wasn’t surprised that he was targeted because he was a black kid in a hooded sweatshirt. I wear a hoodie everyday, and I know when I walk through certain neighborhoods and see a cop that I’m probably going to get stopped.

After months of preparation for the NYC Digital Waves Youth Media Festival, it finally arrived on Saturday July 30th - as it quickly came it also quickly passed. I miss the festival already. But maybe it was part of the appeal so we would hunger more for next year! Even as someone who planned this event I didn't feel like, "finally it's done now move on," (maybe a tiny bit), but I want more.
