Abigael Jaymes '13

Abigael Jaymes '13 is a Multimedia Journalist at KHQA News, a Sinclair Broadcast Group station, reporting the latest news from around Illinois, Iowa and Missouri. Abigael writes, "One of the most valuable lessons I learned during my college career and especially my semester studying in Washington, DC, is the importance of narrative. By knowing one's own story and the stories of the people in one's community, it is possible to affect real change. Broadcast journalists have the ability to exert great influence in a community through access to information, whether this information relates to safety issues, weather and natural disasters, employment statistics, or even product recalls."
