My goal is to transform my blog – http://www.MadameSpeaker.com – into a national news website. This website will have a focus on women of color and would feature news on health, finance, interviews, and arts & entertainment on a national level. The funding from this award would enable me to pay for original content from writers and videographers. The goal is to develop a professional product and create a revenue stream from advertising. It would also be a platform for a variety of folks of different talents to showcase their work.
