Jesse Remedios is one of those rare born and raised DMV natives people hear about yet much too seldom actually meet. His love of history started at a young age, visiting the plethora of monuments, national parks, and random historic sites around the area with his mom and grandma on weekends. As a student at Duke University, Jesse split his time between cheering for the Blue Devils with the iconic Cameron Crazies and rummaging through the Duke University Archives in the library with his slightly less iconic fellow history majors. He returned to his hometown after graduating in 2017 to teach third grade English in D.C. through the AmeriCorps City Year program. He hopes you will enjoy his articles as much as his students enjoyed his attempts at mastering all of D.C.'s greatest dance fads.
