About Me

Teyonna Edwards first discovered her love of journalism in high school and has wanted to become a television reporter ever since. She is a story teller, which influences her in her work. Teyonna will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in mass communication with a concentration in broadcast news in December. She will also receive minors in creative writing and American Sign Language. Teyonna’s background in theatre makes her outgoing and adventurous. She also studied abroad in Ireland during the summer of 2015, which taught her how to interact with people in another culture and how to write travel stories (and how to deal with constant rain). She has learned on and off camera rolls through her morning announcement program in high school and college courses. In her Florida Focus class, she learned to anchor, produce, write for, and run a two minute news brief. Her internship at ThePennyHoarder.com has taught her about the world of digital media and blogging. After graduation, she hopes to work at a local news station as a feature reporter.
