OAKLAND_Youth Radio’s RNC coverage crew is busy getting ready for the convention in St. Paul. We’re developing a series of stories that will take us in and outside the XCel Center, always–of course–with a focus on unexpected youth perspectives. One of our stories will be a profile of 24-year-old conservative advocate, Princella Smith, who broke into national politics four years ago, when she won an MTV essay contest, Stand Up and Holla. Youth Radio reporter Denise Tejada, pictured here, talked to Princella last week. Check out this sneak peek into Princella’s story–and stay tuned for Youth Radio’s marathon coverage of the RNC starting September 1st.
