As many college students go through college, they always dream of getting that one big internship that’ll rocket start their career. Well that’s exactly what happening to FAMU student and Broadcast Journalism major, Javonni Hampton as she landed an internship with CBS.

Javonni born and raised in Orlando, Florida first began her making her way into the world of broadcast journalism back in high school, as she was apart of ten organizations and was the president of six of them.

“Being involved in those different organizations and clubs, it allows you to be able to be a leader as well as a follower, be able to speak your mind and let your opinions to be known, and that kind of paved the way for me to be comfortable in broadcast journalism,” explain Javonni.

Javonni became interested in broadcast journalism back in middle school where she began entering and winning oratorical competitions. Her interest piqued in media after she produced a 15 minute narrative feature about the portrayal of African American women in the media.

“The more women there would be in media, it would promote female evolution just like at one point women didn’t have the right to vote and now you’re seeing women in TV shows and more women becoming journalist. It’s like the more women that [join the media] it’s kind of impossible to tell every woman “no”,” says Javonni.
