Journalist / Poet
Oct 2002 – What’s up my name is Donnie. I am 18 years old, and I attend City-As-School. I used to go to Beacon High School. I’m originally from California, but now live uptown in Washington Heights. I like to write poetry, rap, and play sports and video games. I heard about Harlem Live through a teacher who said that I had great writing skills and should look into an internship that involved writing. And I did just that. I had a previous experience with journalism, when I wrote for my junior high school newspaper. I am the oldest of five. I have two little brothers and two little sisters. I hope to have a good experience here and be able to leave with knowledge that will maybe benefit me in the future.
