Who We Be

Talia (bka T Dot), 23, pays bills in Rhode Island but her heart is still at home, in Flint, Michigan. A newspaper reporter, she covers two small towns and public safety. She's unsure of what she wants to do in the next three years, but is enjoying the ride thus far. An alumna of Hampton University, cooking is her therapy; writing, her passion; and gummi bears, her vice.

Veronica (bka Duck) is 23 and lives, works and plays throughout two states and a district. She makes a living as an independent contractor, having worked for NPR and The budding producer is a proud graduate of Howard University, and is aiming to become the P. Diddy of public radio. In her spare time she does a little bit of reading, a little bit of writing, and a lot of dancing -- sometimes even without music.

Darren (bka D. Sands) is 23, an aspiring journalist and author. He reports on black culture, music and education for the City Weekly section the Boston Globe. He plays a lot of sports, reads a lot of books, and loves the Dave Matthews Band.

He is the sports editor of the student paper, The Hornet, a position he's held for four years. He enjoys reading, writing poetry, listening to old school quiet storm and hip hop, and, of course, sports.

Marcus (bka Vandy) is a 23-year-old originally from Los Angeles who now resides in the Big Apple. Currently he is an intern at AOL Black Voices where he claims to do "a little of this and a little of that." When he's not up to his neck in work, Marcus is probably either on the next flight back to L.A. or glued in front of a television watching all things that is sports.
