Hey Everyone,

It’s Friday, and I’m so glad that you’re tracking along on my journey here in DC! So much happens in a week, but I definitely have a couple of highlights to share with you.

These pics are from a symposium I attended at the American Association for the Advancement of Science on Monday. (Excuse the poor picture quality)

This session blew my mind! It was led by Dr. Nichole Pinkard, who founded the Digital Youth Network, an initiative to foster digital literacy among Chicago’s inner-city youth. For those of you who know me well, you know that inner-city education is my passion! (sorry for the poor picture quality)

This was a panel discussion on future technology for cities.

And this pic is all about food! I tried Thai food for the first time this week with some friends. I basically wanted to try everything on the menu (ever have that problem?), but I decided on Coconut Curry Chicken. It was delicious!
