“My favorite thing about HUABJ is that we have the ability to polish our skills and be as creative as possible. Personally I had the opportunity to practice my writing skills about a live radio broadcast from one of my favorite stations and showcase that piece of writing on the club HUABJ’s official newsletter, “Black Ink”. Now, I can Google my name and see my work.
