With CNN Student News off the air, a lot of people have been asking if I'm off work. No...though a two-month vacation would be sweet. I've spent a bit of time with my family and done some mountain biking, but I've also been hard at work hosting an event called Leadership Unplugged. It's a conference involving dozens of CNN employees, the staff of 21st Century Leaders, and 99 Georgia high school students selected for their talent and leadership potential.
My job included presenting, moderating discussion panels, and emceeing a dinner event, as well as getting to meet some of the brightest juniors and seniors out there. As you can imagine, it involved a lot of talking, and as you'd expect, I loved it. So while I may not be hosting the daily show, I'm still doing a lot of public speaking and (hopefully) staying in reporting shape for fall semester...
What have you been up to?
