Julian Seward, July Member of the Month
When I began my radio show, My Bittersweet Philosophy, it was solely intended to allow me creative expression for personal gratification, to broadcast my taste in music to my peers, and share experiential commentary.
After joining PhillyCAM and working with other members who shared my commitment to bringing our perspectives to the public, I recognized the significance of such a unique initiative. Consequently, I reformatted my program to include interviews showcasing talented, yet unsung artists in the area.
Further, PhillyCAM motivated me to aid in a grass roots effort to provide community journalists in my home state of New Jersey a platform to express themselves. I lobbied for state legislators to pass a bill that would provide such, which was signed by Governor Murphy last month.
Working at PhillyCAM has been a rewarding experience and being named Member of the Month is an honor I never expected.
