Marlesia Jones

Spring 2017

Marlesia Jones is a senior at the University of South Florida. Her major is Mass Communication with a concentration of Telecommunication News. After graduation in fall 2017, Marlesia will go on to become a multimedia journalist and reporter. She expects to travel in order to find a good paying position. Marlesia interned at FOX 13 News fall 2016 where she learned to pitch stories, set up interviews, report, operate cameras, create and edit news stories, and write up web stories. In doing the internship at FOX 13, she was able to narrow down her decision in becoming an MMJ. Marlesia decided to take Florida Focus this semester after hearing a group of young ladies that were also interning at FOX 13 that it would be a good experience; to gain more knowledge in the field, resume enhancement and demo reel footage. She hopes to receive constructive criticism so that she is able to better herself for her future endeavors.
