Name: Brooklyn Brown

Hometown: Hammond, Indiana

Classification: Graduating Senior

Major: Mass Communications

Why did you choose Kentucky State? I won’t say I chose Kentucky State University, Kentucky State University chose me with her green and gold arms wide open. She accepted me as a nervous freshman ready to explore college life and grow in my learning experience.

What is your major and why did you choose this area of study? I chose mass communications because I always had the desire to be on television and/or radio hosting my own podcast or hosting my own show. This is why I created a platform on YouTube (BrooklynMeganTV) where I show lifestyle, vlogs and also beauty. This is an outlet for me to showcase my zest for life and love for people.

Who inspires you and why? When I graduate, I plan on pursuing a career working with CBS News in California. I also want to travel the world as an international journalist documenting my experiences and continuing to build my brand on my YouTube platform.

What do you plan to do when you graduate? My mother continues to inspire me every day. Her tenuous spirit is a true reflection of my late grandmother, Hester Frith Passmore, who always pushed me towards higher learning and overall self-love.

What are some of your favorite words to live by? My grandmother’s favorite prayer, the Prayer of Serenity: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.” Amen.
