White House correspondent and author April Ryan has always used her voice for good. April talks to Ashley about discovering her purpose in one of America’s most prestigious political institutions. As a young girl from Baltimore, Maryland, April constantly fought to overcome adversity and being underestimated. Reflecting on her early days at the White House, April shares her struggles with imposter syndrome and finding her footing. While covering the Trump administration later in her career, April made a name for herself by asking the questions others shied away from. Although there were many days when she wanted to quit, April later made history as the longest serving Black female journalist at the White House with 26 years under her belt. April’s life is truly a testament to what can happen when you allow life to unfold, embrace the unexpected and speak up for what you believe in.
