This is the Eighth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is now open through May 13th. The DC Design House benefits Children's National Medical Center.

Victoria Sanchez of Victoria Sanchez Interiors in Alexandria, VA, www.victoriasanchezinteriors.com, was inspired by her own children for the design of Space 21, the Teenager’s Getaway. “I looked to their likes and dislikes, and their wants and desires as I created this design,” says Sanchez, who is excited to part of the Design House but also knows the amount of work that had to be completed in a short period of time.

GW Hosts Screening of "Living for 32" Documentary in Remembrance of The Virginia Tech Tragedy

GW Hosts Screening of "Living for 32" Documentary in Remembrance of The Virginia Tech Tragedy

April 16th marks the fifth anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre which took place in Blacksburg, Va in 2007. 

32 lives were lost that day in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history as well as the lone gunman who later killed himself.

We all remember where we were when news of a gunman on Tech's campus was announced. I was walking to one of my many journalism classes at my university, which was 2.5 hours from Tech.  I recall looking down at my phone to a mass number of missed calls and text messages from college friends asking if I had heard the news. At that time, some of my best friends from high school went to Tech and I was very worried about them. Thank goodness they were okay, but that day changed campus life forever at Virginia Tech and across the country.
