Can you believe it? We were interviwed on live television by Keira Phillips from CNN.
The airing went pretty smooth and what ‘s even more impressive is  that all of us were running on just two hours of sleep, one hour less of sleep than the night before. We were up until the wee hours of the night editing video, audio and photographs.
And then at the strike of 3 a.m. we loaded up our van and made our way to Atlanta, Georgia; the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the site of CNN Atlanta.

What I’m really tring to say is that we are all working very hard and I am proud and honored to have this experience with some of the finest students at San Jose State. Here are some photographs of them.
