Cassandra Jaramillo creates #MoodyPride
2016 Graduate Q&A on Career and Reporting for the Dallas Morning News
As a first-generation college student, Cassandra Jaramillo was unsure of her career path but knew she was passionate about talking to people, understanding their perspectives and writing.
She harnessed the interest to share others’ stories into a drive toward a journalism degree at the Moody College of Communication. Although Jaramillo dreamed of being a TV reporter in her hometown of Beaumont, Texas, she soon realized broadcast journalism lacked the writing spark of storytelling. Despite the economic challenges faced by the newspaper industry she switched to print journalism and gained experience in multiple media outlets.
