I’ve been holding on to this news for the last two weeks, and now that my work laptop has arrived via FedEx, I feel like I can share my news with the world.
Yesterday was my last day working as a freelance writer for The Root. As of today, I am a full time staff writer for The Root, the site that took a chance and gave a platform to a highly opinionated hard news writer from the west. I am so grateful.
I will still be on the news desk at night, and I will still be bringing you my cutting commentary, but now I do it with a salary, benefits, and a job with a media organization that will only continue to grow.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you dreams don’t come true. They do, and sometimes they come with a brand new MacBook for you to write your success with.
