Jesyca M. Westbrook is a senior print journalism major in the John H. Johnson School of Communications at Howard University. She has always had a love for writing and a thirst for experience.

With a concentration in business and legal journalism, Jesyca has interned with the Memphis Business Journal in her native hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. On campus, Jesyca has contributed to the Hilltop and the District Chronicles. She is currently the copy editor of the Bison.
After graduation in May, Jesyca plans to attend law school. Jesyca spent last summer with the UNITY: Journalists of Color convention as a student online reporter. During this experience she covered the president and met the CEO of AOL/Time Warner.
