From Childhood Hobby to Lifelong Passion
James can trace his passion back to 4th grade when he began sharing the morning announcements with his class. Whether he promoted upcoming school events or the day’s lunch menu, he loved the platform morning announcements provided, allowing students to share stories, thoughts, or information with each other. At home, his parents nurtured his journalistic skills. In front of a green-screen with his mother as his cameraman, James created short videos of mock newscasts and skits that he proudly shared with his family. As he grew older, his childhood fervor for news broadcasting would later lead him to the audiovisual production class at his high school.
