I had a chance to attend a great event called The Gem Project Mini Writers and Media Summit Benefit at the Coffee Cave in Newark, NJ. I learned from some of the best in Media and Publishing. It is great to explore what is going on in your own community. You never know what you will find out or who you will meet!

- Corynne Corbett - Beauty Director of ESSENCE magazine
