My Last Issue of Black Voice/Carta Latina

While in college, I worked on a student run publication that was geared towards African-American and Latino students at Rutgers. Black Voice/Carta Latina (BV/CL) started out as a newsletter in 1969 (as Black Voice originally) and over the years transformed into a newspaper. I started out in  late 2007 as just a contributor and in 2008 I became the managing editor. In the next school year until now I have been an editor-in-chief and then a co-editor. I have supervised finances of the paper, assisted in the layout of the paper, managed content of the paper and the business of the paper. My experiences have been good and bad but well worth the knowledge that I obtained through it.

Below is a PDF of the last issue that was created in InDesign with the help of PrintPod, Inc. I have two articles in the issue: Crime Alert and America vs.Muslim.

Bike Sharing: Mobike

A couple of months ago I was considering buying a new city bike since my previous bike got stolen. I was craving nice bike rides to occupy my sunny weekends; the city issued cycles seemed too tax to register for and the bike stands demand a cash deposit along with a return trip. I asked around my WeChat groups for any suggestions and this guy suggested Mobike. At the time of his suggestion, I hadn't seen a single bike in my area. I registered anyway and discovered through the app's GPS that there were a few bikes a block or two away from my apartment. However, about a week or two later, I saw rows of bikes along streets and it was gorgeous!
Soon after, I saw competitors like Ofo, BlueGoGo and another bike-share company that's all in Chinese. I tried to register for the others because Mobike was too in-demand and becoming less visible. It didn't work out too well; Ofo and BlueGoGo offer English but failed to approve my registration three times. In addition, my coworker …

Songstress Takes Flight With New Record

After reviewing Flight of the Donn T and being impressed with Donn Thompson Morelli’s sophomore album, Pop-Break was able to get a moment out of the Donn’s packed schedule for a scoop on her latest journey. Flight of the Donn T was released on April 21, 2015 following somewhat of a five-year hiatus from Donn’s last album, Kaleidoscopic. While fans were waiting for more from Donn T and could only nibble on her EP Gramophonica, the songstress had a voyage filled with discovery, new love, and maneuvering around a slight hurdle she needed to overcome in order to deliver her music safe and soundly to the world. “Kaleidoscopic was recorded and mastered in a week. The day before I made Kaleidoscopic, I didn’t know I was making it,” says Donn T. The album (which was her debut record) was composed with the UK-based French producer DJ Simbad and an international hit as it drew from London electronica and Chicago house while stained with Philly-like flare. While opening for Marsha Ambrosius a fe…
