Jessica Floyd

BA, Politics and Government, 2018

Honors student Jessica Floyd ’18 studied politics and government and minored in Africana studies, communication, and sociology. During her time at UHart, she produced a political talk show on Hartford Public Access Television and interned with WNPR. She was one of only 13 students nationwide accepted to Politico’s Journalism Institution this year, and she is currently working on A Seat at the Table, her own podcast.

My ideal job would be to work at an owned-and-operated television affiliate.
