onAir Activities

As a person who believes in democracy and the importance of educating my fellow citizens, I am glad to be an OnAir Content Curator for Virginia OnAir. This past election season was my first time voting in a Presidential Election. The feeling that I experienced from performing my civic duty is one that I will never forget. I think the work that Democracy OnAir does to inform the US public on federal, state, and local government politics is extremely important for media literacy. Recently, we have seen a growing distrust among the American public towards the media which can increase ignorance of important political decisions. It can also decrease civic participation. That is why I admire organizations that are committed to promoting the democratic values that are integral to the United States democracy.
