Krista Fleming is the Entertainment Editor of Hawkeye student newspaper of Hebron High School in Carrollton, Texas. In conjunction with the communications team, Fleming works alongside Catharine Li, Nyla Smith, and Dominic Plata to share pertinent information concerning New Voices in a timely, accessible manner.
“Everyone has a voice they need to be able to share, and the stories
that are most often taken down are the ones most necessary to be
heard. Taking away that freedom is taking away knowledge that needs
to be accessible, and that’s
something that needs to change.”
What I Do
As a Communications and Social Media Specialist of New Voices Texas, I work to extend the outreach of this program in an effort to strengthen the community of student journalists.
I am responsible for working with the communications team and officer to try and keep our information updated and posted frequently to show other people what we want to do.
I will measure success by how much this community grows and what we can manage to accomplish. By the end of the year, I want to have made a difference in the fight for the voices of student journalists across Texas to be heard.
