My name is Nefsa’Hyatt Brown, a junior at Alabama State University who has declared a major of political science and a minor in international relations.  I am from Mobile, Alabama, and my parents are Ms. Jenekia Thompson and Mr. Lewis Brown Jr.

I would have to say that my mom has had the greatest influence on my life, in fact, I have no idea where I would have been or what would have become of me without her.  She is my light in a dark place, she is strong when I am weak, and through this journey, she is continuously building me up to be all of that I can be.

I graduated from Baker High School in 2017 where I was a JEM Scholar which allowed me the opportunity to complete dual enrollment courses and ACT Prep, with an Honors Endorsement. In high school, I was extremely involved much like college.  I was president of Future Business Leaders of America, I wrote for my school’s newspaper The Hornet Herald, and I was my school’s lead orator as I came in 4th place in impromptu speaking at the state FBLA conference.

After arriving at Alabama State University, I began writing for the newspaper as a freshman.  Last year, I was named the Editor-in-Chief of The Hornet Tribune and I held on to that responsibility this year also.  I am a Golden Ambassador, a member of UNITE, NAACP, College Democrats, the WEB DuBois Honors Program, and the student lead for a community service program titled Read and Reign.

As I am entering my third year on the staff and my second year as the editor-in-chief I have always stressed the importance of expansion in terms of what I hope to accomplish as the editor. However, as time has gone on my focus has shifted to exposure through increasing our readership and ensuring that our content is something that is both informative and eye-catching to the audience.

My name is Christine Shelton, a junior at Alabama State University who has declared English as my major.  I am from Chicago, Illinois and my parents are Ms. Jacquelyn Jackson and Mr. Christopher Shelton.

My parents and my grandmother have had the greatest influence on my life because they’re the reason I am the young woman I am today. They always kept me on the right track and kept me disciplined, and they’ve played a big role in why I’m so driven and goal-oriented in my studies. Another person who has had a great influence on my life is my high school Advanced Composition and African American Literature teacher, Mrs. Tiffany Stewart-Williams, as her class is the reason I chose to pursue a career in high school English education.

I graduated from Thornton Fractional North High School in Calumet City, Illinois where I was a member of the National Honor Society and vice president of my junior class.  I was also selected as the Most Valuable Player of the badminton team my senior year.

I chose Alabama State University because I heard they had a spectacular teaching program as I aspire to be an English teacher.  Since arriving at Alabama State University, I am active with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), NSLS, Student Alabama Education Association, Sigma Tau Delta, UNITE and the co-curriculum designer for a volunteer organization Read and Reign.

My name is Corryn Carter, and I am a sophomore communications major with a concentration in recording technology. As a Montgomery native, I graduated from the esteemed Booker T. Washington Magnet High School, where I was a member of the National Honor Society and co-editor for the school’s yearbook.

In addition to working for The Hornet Tribune, I am the 2019-2020 Juvenile Justice Committee Chair for the NAACP. The people that have been the most influential in my life have definitely been all of my family’s matriarchs. I’ve inherited their quick wit and their burning desire to leave this world better than they found it. As a staff reporter and columnist, I hope to use my words to impact change both on my campus and within my community.
