Jade Jackson – NBC 6 News Journalist | Passion Behind the Art Episode 133

Summary

Hello, it’s time for another episode, so let’s jump right in.

DP connects with media journalist Jade Jackson. Her journey started at the age of 9 when the school librarian, selected her to do morning announcements, an honor normally reserved for the sixth-grade students. She was hailed by students and teachers as being funny and entertaining. She didn’t like the news however and like most children, her age pondered why her family chose to watch them instead of morning cartoons. It would take the CNN document, Black In America, to make her take interest with the idea of telling stories. During her high school years, she was a member of the yearbook, newspaper and television committees which launched her into the world of broadcasting. She attended Jarvis Christian College, founded by her Great-grandfather, and has made a promise to establish a journalism degree program there. Her drive to allow others the same opportunity given to her speaks to the passion she has for her art.
