My name is Jontee Lindsey and I am an eager student looking to better myself with both internships and employment in the sports reporting field. I am determined and focused on obtaining the necessary skills to lead me to a successful career.
My objective is to obtain either an internship or employment in the sports reporting field by way of blogging, non-linear editing, anchoring, reporting, or writing. I want to learn new skills as well as improve my existing skills in order to achieve this goal.
My interests are pretty basic and include sports, good food, having fun with family and friends, blogging, networking, writing, music, reading, and trying to expand myself and make my own brand. Being a college student has opened my eyes to alot and I am making a name and brand for myself and constantly learning ways to expand and enhance that brand.

Aug 2008 - Present
I am currently a junior at Claflin University. I am majoring im Mass Communications with a concentration in Digital Media and a minor in Business Adminstration. During my three years at Claflin University I have maintained a 3.0 and I was recently invited to join the Claflin University Chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success. During my three years I have also played for the Women's Basketball program. I am focusing my minor on Bsuiness Administration so I can take my media skills and apply them to both sports and business. Having a background knowledge in business will only heighten my chances to work in corporate America.
