Kamaria Walton , Lead Beats Editor

Hey! My name’s Kamaria in my free time I like to run, listen to music, cook and educate myself about social issues. I’m very into the sciences especially the realm of Environmental Science. I joined Journalism to learn some organization skills as well as how to meet deadlines; both practical life skills necessary for success in college. But over my first year, I fell in love with writing about social issues mostly about LGBT and black issues and designing infographics to draw readers in. I’m now three years into my journalism career as the lead beats editor and am loving almost every minute of it. I’ve found that it's increased my social skills and communication abilities. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit again to read some more about social issues from the perspective of a disgruntled biracial 17-year-old.

Explora celebrates Pi Day, 3.14.15, Saturday, March 14, 2015 in Albuquerque, N.M. The date for Pi Day, which are the first five numbers of Pi, only happen once every hundred years. Pi was placed all around the museum for visitors to discover, including this Pi sail for a fan-powered toy. Behind the Pi sail is Caroline Murphree of Texas, and her daughter Rebecca, 6. ''We are both math people and we think Pi is pretty cool,'' Murphree said about her and her husband, who visited the children's museum while traveling.

Today, there is still a difference between black and white educations. The schools with students that live in poverty tend to be predominantly black. The dropout rate in secondary education is higher for black males over white males.
