University of Washington - Charles
It's been a long, tiring day and I cannot wait to go to sleep. Here are some pictures of today's kick-off event at the University of Washington; I'll post some more thoughts tomorrow when I get the time and energy. Time to go pack for the road!
We had to get up very early yesterday morning – 5 o’clock to be exact – and given the fact that daylight savings time was this past weekend, to us it felt like getting up at 4 o’clock. KONG TV wanted to film some teasers for their Seattle Live show that morning, and they were going to incorporate the clips with interviews from Ashley and myself.
The press conference went by very quickly; I was stammering in the beginning, but by the time I was talking about my personal stories it got a lot easier.
The activity event attracted a lot of attention; we were able to speak with many people, a lot of them not familiar with mixed race issues but left a little more enlightened.
