A B O U T M E
Hello! I'm Tyra, a Chicago native and recent graduate of the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications at Northwestern University. At school, I was the creative director of BlackBoard Magazine (NU's only Black interest publication) and the President of the NU chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists.
I am a writer who's passionate about the art of storytelling and the power of the truth. Within the realms of music, arts and culture, I hope to use the gift of the written word to chronicle the tales of those who have historically been misrepresented and/or disregarded by mainstream media. I am a firm believer that everyone has a voice, so no, I don't want to give a voice to the voiceless. Rather, I want to amplify the voices that are being ignored and help folks take control over their own narrative.
Feel free to reach out!
