The first awesome Washingtonian of the month

Magda Johanna Gomez
Nomination Date as the Awesome Washingtonian of the Day: Sept 15
Live in:
Washington, DC
Originally from: Colombia, South America
Profession: Board Agent/ Language Specialist at the National Labor Relations Board
What She loves about DC area the most: I enjoy the culture, the architecture and the diversity that the city has to offer.  I relish learning about different cultures and enjoy the museums, the restaurants and the small coffee shops.  I love the fact that people in D.C. actually enjoy and use the streets in comparison to other cities, and there is always a new hole-in-the-wall to discover.
Total number of Votes: 585
Ave score (out of 5): 4.76

The second awesome Washingtonian of the month

Leigh Macdonald
Nomination Date as the Awesome Washingtonian of the Day: Sept 22
Live in: Leesburg, Virginia
Originally from: A cattle ranch in Florida
Profession: Attorney & law professor turned freelance writer & blogger
What she loves about DC the most: I think D.C. is fabulous because it bustles—like any great metropolitan area—but it does so with tons of purpose. Washingtonians are motivated to make change, to advance causes, and to support others. I love that, and I think it makes our city really special.
Total number of Votes: 298
Ave score (out of 5): 4.89

The third awesome Washingtonian of the month

Dominique Fierro
Nomination Date as the Awesome Washingtonian of the Day: Sept 20
Live in: Bethesda, MD
Originally from: Born in D.C. – I am a Haitian American
Profession: Photographer/Stylist/Interior Designer… A.K.A your ” Creative Guru
What she loves about DC the most: The culture. It is a melting pot of every nationality, religious backgrounds and wacky characters all in one :-) This city is always throwing you a curve ball. The beauty of D.C. is that there is never an excuse for anyone to be bored, in the same day you can drive 30 minutes and go pick apples and play with some goats at a farm or go hang out at a trendy roof top pool while listening to Damien Marley. This past weekend I watched my husband play soccer on the National Mall and we ended up watching some impromptu swing dancing in Dupont Circle. There is no other place like it, how many people get to say that they went rowing in the Potomac river and then spotted the president on the same day! What’s not to like ?
Total number of Votes: 265
Ave score (out of 5): 4.91
