At first Camille Devincenti was just a writer and editor for her school newspaper, The Tattler. She also wrote for her local Montgomery Country online student newspaper, The MoCo Student. Then, she asked herself, why doesn't DC have it's own online student newspaper? And The DC Student was born. She envisions it as a combination of the best writers from every school, including people that may not have the opportunity to write for their school newspaper, but still want to have their voices heard and be published.
