Hello and thank you for taking the opportunity to find out who I am.  My name is Tiona Kuniken and I am a community journalist from Baltimore, Maryland.  Each and everyday i am driven by news and music. I strive to bring issues and concepts that people rarely think about or mention aloud to the full-front. This is exactly why I am a community journalist.  

My goal is to enlighten the members of my community about the things that traditional media is not willing to share with them.

My goal as an individual is to touch someone's life in a positive way every day that my Lord gives me another chance to do so.


My objective is to obtain a position as a community reporter.
