My job title is Writer for Speak Up Magazine. My work involves reporting on Charlotte events, writing up profiles on the vulnerably housed vendors, connecting with new vendors and supporting current staff, volunteers, and vendors. What I like about my job is I get to meet and befriend individuals who I never would have gotten the chance to meet.
