Kyra enrolled into Howard University in Fall of 2015, where she is currently on track to complete her degree in Spring 2019.

 

Experience

Kyra has been dedicated to cultivating her journalism skills since she was in high school, which is when she began to work as a station intern at Clear Channel in New Orleans. Since then she’s as also work as a station intern as WWNO and WDSU in New Orleans, where she had the opportunity to sharpen her journalism skills.

Statement

I feel I would make an excellent candidate for the National Association of Black Journalist Student Representative because of my experience in working in leadership roles and creating programming for young people my age. I have worked extremely hard in every leadership positive I have held to ensure that the members gain the most from their experience, and I plan to do the same if elected. I have experience planning and working on large scale programs for more than 1000 teens.
