My name is Janeen Johnally. I live in South Florida and am a 23-year-old new media journalism graduate student at Full Sail University. In my spare time, I enjoy critiquing movies, going out to eat with my friends and playing with my 5-year-old Yorkie, Mya. Although I can be introverted and shy at times, I have a niche for making people laugh and am an excellent listener.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Florida Atlantic University. For a year, I provided social services to advocate for children but I soon realized I wanted a bigger voice. Although I did not continue to pursue a career as a social worker, this field taught me a lot about social empowerment and social justice, which will be the thesis portrayed throughout my website.
With my experience in social work, this website will serve as an outlet to promote social change. So often in life, we tend to judge and define others by their outward appearances. Everyone has a story, which may or may not equate to his or her current situation. Personality and intelligence cannot be determined merely by one’s occupation or attire. I believe that beauty and heroism is often overlooked and I am embarking on a personal journey to find it within my community. I will conduct a series of interviews and document citizens who are inspiring in their own right.
My intimate approach to journalism will promote social empowerment and give the people a chance to be heard. By interacting with people in my community, I intend to surpass social statuses to find beauty and inspiration in everyone I meet, including you!
