Terps Against Hunger

The mission of Terps Against Hunger is to provide food for those in need and raise awareness about the scope of hunger in the DC Metro area. TAH packages convenient, nutritious, and non-perishable meals to distribute to local families experiencing hunger. I had a fun afternoon packaging these meals with my friends and I’m happy to have helped address the issue of hunger in the local community!

Cherry Blossom Festival

I had the opportunity to join thousands of parade participants and spectators for one of Washington, D.C.’s fondest traditions, the 2015 National Cherry Blossom Parade.

The Cherry Blossom Parade, in its 103rd year, is one of the Cherry Blossom Festival’s largest spectator events. The parade celebrates the 3,000 beautiful Cherry Blossom trees given as a gift to the people of Washington, D.C., from Tokyo in 1912. It showcases the blooming cherry blossoms and an array of marvelously designed floats, military personnel, marching bands, and performances of all kinds in a grand spectacle of music and showmanship. It was a beautiful day and a great experience meeting so many new people!
