Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.

Whether on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr, many teenagers find themselves surrounded by an endless number of social media sites. However, many are finding that there isn’t a place to really gain a voice- a place to be heard. Our mission at #RealTalk is to create an online live radio program for teens in the DMV area. Our goal here at #RealTalk is to unite the teenage community – by engaging teens to listen, talk and gain awareness of topics ranging from religion to pop culture. By scrutinizing trends and current event, our goal is to provide teens with a place to speak freely, and learn from one another. While many underestimate today’s generation, we strive to create a forum to give teenagers the oppurtunity to do more. By doing so we finally grant teenagers a place to voice their opinions, speak their minds and gain perspective on the world we live in today.
