Voorhees College mass communication student gets interviewed by My HBCUInterview
January 18, 2019
Jaelynn Synder, sophomore mass communication major, was recently interviewed by MyHBCUInterview about her experience at Voorhees College.
Snyder was selected for an interview after following the companies Instagram’s page. The interview was about her college experience and any advice she would offer to upcoming college students.
One of the questions she was asked was why she chose to attend an HBCU over a Predominantly White Institution (PWI). Snyder said she noticed some of the top schools were HBCUs and they aim to empower young African Americans. “I knew about PWIs but I was not interested because I wanted the “HBCU experience.” HBCUs across the land have made reputations based on their artistic sounds and performing arts in music,” Snyder said.
Snyder was also asked to describe why she chose the mass communications major, and she said mass communication allows me to interact with others using different platforms. “I have the capability to use my degree to become a news anchor, actor, TV personality, journalist, etc. It is a great way to get molded to express yourself in various areas,” Snyder said.
The mission of MyHBCUInterview is to maintain the legacy of greatness found at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by sharing the knowledge, experience, and truth found in the words of alumni and students who have attended HBCUs.
By the company carrying out this mission, they provide networking opportunities and facilitate the interchange of knowledge, while also maintaining and uplifting the reputation of HBCUs nationally as well as internationally.
