Hello! My name is Alexis A. Mathews, I am a Senior Broadcast Journalism major from Chicago, IL, here at the best university in the world, the University of Kentucky! As one who loves to talk, write, and report, especially about current events, I decided to pursue a career that I would be able to instill my passion. In a couple of years, you will see me on your television screen as the next big Entertainment Correspondent, reporting the latest pop culture news. My absolute favorite things about this major besides not having finals (lol), is that my natural born skills are being manifested to ensure that my end goal is met: and that is to change the world through media.

In addition to being a Student Ambassador, I am Vice President of “The Elite List”, a panel discussion show centered around campus and cultural events, as well as a member of the Iota Sigma Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. One thing that everyone knows about me is my obsession with Beyoncé. She is the epitome of female empowerment! I hope to one day be as influential to others and leave my mark in history as she has.
