Testimonial from past scholarship recipient: “My name is Ubah Ali, I was fortunate enough to get a scholarship from Twin Cities Black Journalists to attend the NABJ conference in Detroit. If it was not for the scholarship, they gave I do not believe I would have attended. At the conference, I was able to learn valuable lessons about being a journalist. Connect with peers and take full advantage of the career fair. At the career fair, I was able go through interviews and develop relationships with news directors across the United States.
