Maryland-raised Melanie Martin is a natural city girl. Beginning her college career as a shy freshman who hardly went out on the weekends, Martin has matured into her senior year. A communications major, Martin hosts the show “Fabulously Focused” on Temple’s WHIP and has recently created her own Web site based on the show.
Amir Mu-el lives just three blocks from his place of employment: Temple. Mu-el works night shifts for the facilities department, where he has worked for the past seven years and therefore been insured by Blue Cross Blue Shield. But now that the health care bill has passed, his 21-year-old daughter will be able to stay under his plan for five more years.
