Maya - howard

I have made it my obligation to inform, influence and inspire the public with my knowledge. I aim for my writing to make a prominent difference in the lives of others. The best outlet I have found to express myself is through journalism. My passion for a powerful story motivated me to major in print/online journalism at Howard University’s School of Communications in Washington, D.C. I am interested in opportunities to broaden my knowledge, polish my writing, editing, and interpersonal relationship skills, and to strengthen my ability to work under multiple and tight deadlines. I believe the combination of my college experience and personal qualities – solid written and oral communication skills, painstaking attention to detail, and unquestioned work ethic – will bring invaluable assets to a work environment. I possess the proven ability to work independently and within a team while pursuing mutually beneficial goals and interests. I have strong interpersonal skills; rich understanding of importance and value of communication to build and strengthen confidence and trust of target audience and colleagues.

When Safe Sex Goes Horribly Wrong

I was struck with complete disbelief after reading about a woman who, despite using multiple forms of birth control, keeps getting pregnant. Like, pregnant seven times in 5 years.

Did I mention she's tried the Pill, condoms, injections and an IUD...and they still don't work?
