Finally a profile of Ris

Hey everyone,

My newspaper has finally published one of my most 'fun-to-read' stories. Due to some timing issues and the desire to publish the story on a Sunday, it's just now getting up. I worked really hard on this story, so please check it out!


Apparently the CityPaper in Washington D.C. found my story and wrote a little blurb. Read it here.

Profile of me...kinda

Apparently Boston University puts profiles of their students up on their Web site. It's taken them a while, but here's mine.

"There is the United States of America..."

Good morning my country! Guess what...I'm proud of you. And you too, Indiana.

Not necessarily because you chose the best candidate - thought I believe you did - but because of the momentum you have inspired in this country for the first time since I can remember. History was made last night - that cannot be denied. Grass root efforts pull through yesterday and I am so proud of everyone in this country for using their voice. I'm thrilled with stories of massive voter turn out. I'm ecstatic that the youth vote actually came alive yesterday.


And now, the hard part...right? We aren't a decidedly blue country - we are very violet. I have so many friends and family members who do not share in my excitement about our President-elect. And I know how you feel....four years ago I was feeling much the same. How do you rebuild? I honestly don't know, but I hope and pray that there is a plan in place. And I have faith that there is. And I know in my heart that we have an amazing and competent leader who will hopefully sway those who are on the fence.

God bless America.
