My name is Jenna Shaw. I am 23 years-old with a Bachelor’s in Mass Communication and Journalism and a minor in psychology from the University of South Florida. I love writing and traveling to photograph new things, people, and places. However, I believe it doesn’t have to be far away to be foreign, just looking at something with new perspective can make the ordinary, exceptional.

In case you were curious, here is some extra information about me:


A brief history:

I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Whitefish Bay to be exact.
And yes, I am partial to the Milwaukee Brewers and the Green Bay Packers… And I love beer brats.

My activities growing up:
Music: violin, piano, clarinet, and electric guitar
Sports: soccer, figure skating, gymnastics, field hockey, track, tennis, and then later in life was beer pong
Languages: French, Italian, and Spanish

In 2009 I started taking courses at Milwaukee Area Technical College, consequently missing out on all the things Freshmen typically experience.

In August of 2010, I moved to Saint Petersburg, Florida.

In 2011, after establishing residency, I started courses at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.

In May 2015 I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications and Journalism. My minor was psychology.


Random Facts about me:

I like watching movies, but am not a big fan of watching shows because I do not like having to wait to find out what happens next.
If I were a Disney character I would want to be Belle. I like her because she was able to see the good in everyone. This is what ultimately made it possible for her to get the handsome prince. I already have my handsome “prince,” and I am always trying to find the best in people.
