A Little Bit About Laura

My name is Laura Jervis and I am Me holding my AP Stylebook a journalism major at the University of Florida. My outside concentration is in African Studies because I am interested in writing for a wire service one day. I love languages and study Italian and Swahili.

Laura's Love

Journalism is my life-long passion. Reporters are on the cusp of history. They are society’s record-keepers, the nation’s conscience and the most integral part of a functioning and open democracy. Despite the uncertainty of today’s news industry, or perhaps because of it, I feel exciting changes are coming to newspapers and to the nation at large. I have the sense of living in a cornerstone era of American history. One day, I will be a living record. I will tell my children and grandchildren my memories of this decade.
