Today I met with a well-known student in the Hood College community, Jamone Davis. Jamone is a Senior majoring in Mass Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism. He is known for his inspiring and emotional poetry performances on campus and within the Frederick community, like his performance in the school’s talent show and his opening poem for March on Frederick.
He has been writing poetry since he was in the 6th grade and continues to write today for himself and the pleasure of performing. Like many of us writers, he writes to vent and to express himself through writing about life experiences that either he or the people around him have experienced.
“If I see someone going through something I write about it, what I feel I write,” Davis said.
