This story started years ago in a West Baltimore middle school. Two eccentric Black girls bonded over their shared love of cats, cartoons, and well-timed jokes. And sarcasm. Lots and lots of sarcasm. They became best friends, and over the years, began a journey into young adulthood. They remained in Baltimore, stayed true to the city, but realized Baltimore isn’t getting the attention it deserves. The varying stories in the Charm City deserve more representation. We hear all about the inner harbor and we know about the (pro)jects, but what happens in between? We’re here to tell the everyday stories of the charming nerds from ova west.
