Bio

Hello! My name is Renee Douglas, and I'm excited to introduce myself. I'm currently pursuing a Journalism and Mass Communication degree, specializing in Public Relations. My passion lies in using media to create a positive impact, especially for the Black female community. Additionally, my active involvement in esteemed organizations such as the National Association of Black Journalists and the Public Relations Student Scholars of America has further enriched my academic journey. These experiences have not only broadened my knowledge and honed my skills but have also presented me with invaluable networking opportunities. By engaging with these organizations, I have gained a deeper understanding of the industry and established connections with professionals and peers who share my passion for media and community impact. I strongly believe in the power of education for empowerment and social transformation. By granting me this scholarship, you'll be investing in both my academic journey and my potential to make a difference in the Black female community. With your support, I aim to use my education and media expertise to amplify marginalized voices, challenge stereotypes, and bring about positive change through storytelling. My summer programs, 3.88 GPA, and 22 hours of community service have prepared me to excel as a public relations specialist in the government. Winning this scholarship would be an incredible honor and a significant help on my journey. Thank you for considering my application!
