- Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) (November 2012 – April 2013) As a fellow with the DME, my responsibilities included managing external affairs and communications for the District’s Raise DC initiative. I also handled various social media functions on behalf of the Office. During my tenure, we established a solid, consistent social media and communications presence and doubled online followers. In addition, I have made recommendations for an internal technology and civic engagement plan to further boost the Office’s digital presence and sharing of information. I also drafted a proposed plan to attend to the needs of disconnected youth on behalf of the Deputy Mayor, for submission for Mayor Gray’s consideration.
