#FBF : On today’s date last year, I landed in Miami just in time to check in, put on some makeup & a cute black dress, then head to an #NABJ19 party with @cherylduncan . Hey 👋🏾 Btw, @rosievillafana , you can get a good palm read from this pic 🤣 #AllTheRageWithShelleyWade

#TBT Take me back to #NABJ19 in Miami where things were normal. You were around your colleagues who look like you. You got to network and meet folks in-person for the first time. This year NABJ is a bit different with a dual virtual convention with NAHJ.

Thinking back on #NABJ19 , my first convention and the place where I truly felt at home. I miss meeting new people IN PERSON and wearing cute outfits too! 😉 Wishing the best for everyone attending the conference virtually this year. Cheers to #NABJNAHJ20 🥳

Last year @ #nabj I was able to see Leonard Pitts the night before the authors showcase AND the very next day! I even sat in the same row as him before he was interviewed about his latest book! In the words of my friend and mentor @rochellerileythewriter , she refers to him as “the blueprint.” I’m sooooo happy i was able to meet Leonard (for about the 3rd time in my life ) get my book signed, and chat with him for awhile. He encouraged me to make time to write daily.He’s such an awesome writer! #tbt #nabj19 #nabjnahj20 #literature #writing

Had the pleasure to serve as a mentor in the @nabjstudents Project in #Miami last summer for #NABJ19 — the 3Oth Anniversary of the program! Tomorrow, we go virtual and the objective remains! Blessed to be back this year (fourth consecutive ) in the same role for #NABJNAHJ20 ’s installment! Can’t wait! @nabjofficial @officialnahj

#Congratulations to friend of PRecise and talk show trailblazer @TamronHall on her Daytime Emmy win! Tamron won Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host for @TamronHallShow and we couldn’t be happier! We were lucky enough to learn more about Tamron and her journey last year during our #NABJ19 brand activation with #Toyota : “The Journey to my Wildest Dream.” It comes as no surprise that she won this well deserved award! We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you and your show.

Oh, what a difference a year makes! Almost a year ago, I had the pleasure of meeting creative soul @leslieodomjr at National Association of Black Journalists @nabjofficial #NABJ19 of which I served as convention co-chair. NABJers are now gearing up for a virtual convention. Having not seen #Hamilton in person, watching the #HipHop and #History collaboration he and the entire cast delivered on screen via @disneyplus was an epic viewing experience I’ll never forget! The diversity of the performers telling the story of a founding father was enlightening as they took us through conflict, loss and forgiveness. I highly advise you watch and discover the parallels of laws and unrest we are still facing today. History sure does repeat itself... As a #Journalist , my favorite line in the #HamiltonFilm - “I’ll write my way out.” #ScreenMagic #NABJNAHJ2020 #IMessenger #TexasMetroNews #GarlandJournal

It’s been a year TODAY since #California passed #thecrownact becoming the first state to ban discrimination against #naturalhair for students and in the workplace. Proud to be part of this photo shoot from #NABJ19 that prompted national conversations on #naturalhaironair

#TBT to #NABJ19 with the phenomenal @mj_reports . I would love to SEE my @NABJ family in person but since we can't this year, let's do the next best "virtual" thing. See you online in August! • There’s nothing like interviewing professional journalists ... 😂😅 I was able to cover the first day of my FIRST NABJ Convention. So amazing to be here! #NABJ19

Last year when we could go outside, 😜I made my trek down to a quaint little @vrbo literally ON #Aventura Beach for #NABJ19 . It was my first major trip after burying my mom. Those early morning beach meditations help to restore my balance to get me back to life. This year as I reflect, I was planning to go to Washington, DC for our annual #Unity Conference - where journalists of color (Asian-American, Latino, Native-American and Black ) from all diaspora meet up share. Of course #Covid19 sideline those plans and now we will all meet virtually. Less than a year ago, I certainly could not have seen this coming. However, the beauty of this moment is that it shows us that in spite of we can still survive and thrive! Forever forward . . . Keep living #YourBestLife !

From when I met Gary Payton last summer in #Miami at #NABJ19 during @thebig3 competition! One of my all-time favorites who did it on both sides of the ball — and he did all he could in that 1996 #NBAFinals series against MJ and Co. while with Seattle! GP was featured on tonight’s Episode 8 of #TheLastDance ! @gary .payton.20 #TheGlove #SundayFunday #BIG3

I remember being too intimidated and nervous thinking I wasn’t successful or ready enough for NABJ in 2016. So I can’t help but look back on this week and smile. I’m so thankful for the talented, accomplished colleagues that in such a short time have become mentors, friends and family. I’m Thankful for dreams coming to fruition and the reminder that I AM on the right path as I make my way through this journey. Thank you @nabjofficial for another empowering, inspiring week!😊🙏🏾❤️ #NABJ19 @nabjstf#ReneePWashington #rpw #sportsreporter #womeninsports #sportsmedia #blackgirlmagic #model #fashion #runway # #positivevibesonly #fitgirl #blackmodel #fashion #blessings #nabj

As I leave #NABJ19  I can’t help but think how grateful I am for this org. I made new friends, reconnected with old ones and picked up a few tools that should help me become a better journalist. Appreciative of every conversation I had. Can’t wait for next year’s convention in DC.

Just taking a moment to reflect. The power of of manifestation and speaking things into existence is real! I made a choice back in May that would stop letting excuses keep me from pursuing what I love! Since then it’s like the sky has opened up for me and the opportunities to grow and perfect my craft have been everywhere. Sitting at this news desk was surreal and made me want to grind that much harder until I am there!
