A Fayetteville State University senior communications student was nominated to participate in the inaugural Black News Channel HBCU Journalism Project.
DorMiya Vance, a Goldsboro native, was one of the 20 HBCU students who were chosen to participate in BNC’s Virtual Media Day. Following the virtual event, students had to write and publish an original story in their student newspaper within 10 days about topics that were discussed during the virtual event.
Eight students were chosen for the projects’ next stage, including Vance.
As one of the eight finalists, Vance has her work showcased on the Black New Channel’s website with an online poll that allowed fans to vote for their favorite stories. The final four finalists, who will be chosen around Dec. 20, will be offered paid internships at BNC in the summer of 2022.
Vance said she took on the 10-day assignment that helped her become one of the finalists with ease.
“The process, like for me, it was nothing,” Vance said. “I was looking at it as another challenge, one of those things I just got to overcome.”
Vance said the work she’s done, including serving as the editor-in-chief of the FSU student newspaper, the Voice, has helped her with this opportunity.
