Jacquie Lee

My name is Jacquie Lee and I’m a sophomore at American Univeristy studying journalism and Arab world studies. Although issues of homelessness and poverty have always held a place close to my heart, it wasn’t until I started writing for Street Sense that I got a real understanding of who the underserved are, and what can be done to help them. Street Sense has affected real change in my life. As an editorial intern, I’ve enjoyed getting hands on experience in journalism, social justice issues and local government, all while creating a dialogue with D.C. residents from all walks of life.
