Alumna’s passion for storytelling leads to prestigious fellowship
Taylor Jennings-Brown is a 2021 mass communications and South Carolina Honors College graduate and has landed a coveted Kroc Fellowship with NPR.
As a child, Jennings-Brown would listen to NPR’s podcast with her father and discuss social and political issues.
During her senior year, Jennings-Brown took Laura Smith’s Podcasting in the Public Interest course, where she found her passion for audio storytelling.
“It’s like you’re transported to a place, or you become the story,” Jennings-Brown says. “It’s a different experience than just reading. Good writing is supposed to do the same thing. But I feel like audio does it in a way that no other form of media can.”
Jennings-Brown thanks her father for exposing her to NPR.
