I AM BLESSED!!!
I've been selected as one of the 2015 Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) Emerging Journalist Fellows!
I'll be traveling to gorgeous Whitefish, Montana in October for a training camp, where I will be mentored by some of the best female reporters in the industry.
The mission of JAWS, to "support the personal growth and development of women in the newsroom and work toward a more accurate portrayal of the society as a whole," is helped by generous donations.
As a fellow, my fundraising goal is $140 by June 30.
PLEASE consider a monetary gift of any size to this wonderful cause.
Thank you so much!

We're the Journalism & Women Symposium (JAWS), and we're raising money to bring 10 early-career female journalists to this year's Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) in Montana.
Help us train a new generation of journalists committed to working towards our mission of a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by June 30, and we know that's possible with your support.
Here's how donations of all sizes can impact the life and career of a rising female journalist:
$25: Your donation of $25 will allow one fellow to attend a digital media training session at the conference.
$50: Your donation of $50 will underwrite 1:1 mentor training sessions for one fellow.
$100: Your donation of $100 will underwrite four speaker panels for a fellow.
$250: Your donation of $250 will cover three nights of lodging for one fellow.
$500: Your donation of $500 will underwrite registration for one fellow.
$1,000: Your donation of $1,000 covers most of the registration, travel and lodging expenses for one fellow to attend the Journalism and Women Symposium conference, a one-of-a-kind career building event.
$5,000: Your $5,000 donation ensures five fellows will be able to attend CAMP, where they will gain the necessary experience, tools, and networks to expand their journalism careers.
