This week I had the privilege of meeting my supervisor. This incredible woman, Aisha Karimah, is Director of Community Affairs at NBC4 where she has worked since for 43 years. During this time, she has organized several campaigns for the DC community. Her experience and reputation in world of news media and in the community makes her an ideal mentor and advisor. I’m very excited to be working with her.  She takes my learning experience as an intern very seriously and has already set up meetings with other department heads. 

This coming week I will be meeting with my 2nd supervisor, Carissa DiMargo. She manages a section of NBC4’s presence online known as The Scene. I have been pairing to meet her all weekend. Scoping out the Washington DC scene. I’ve been talking to locals and tourists about the hottest spots in town, getting used to navigating the city, and trying to document every moment.

I got a chance to go check out part of the Smithsonian and observes the gay pride parade.
