I’m a rising junior at Carolina High School and I plan to attend Winthrop University to pursue a master’s degree in fine arts. I’m a member of the CHS Tiger Alliance and National Honors Society. I’m originally from Greenville, SC but I have family anywhere from Boston, New Jersey and even southern areas such as North Carolina.
During the summer of 2018, I am working as an intern with the Chamber to complete projects that require me to do anything from research and marketing to graphic design and even the occasional coffee run, should need be. I’m excited to learn more about the Greenville community that I adore so much as well as being able to be a part of the building and expansion of businesses throughout Greenville.
I play multiple sports including football and occasionally baseball and compete in track field events (shotput and discus). I have a deep love for anime and comics; I’m a big DC fan. I love art and animation and I hope to one day become an author and illustrator of my own manga series in the future.
Jay is interning with the Chamber through the LaunchGVL program, a partnership between Greenville County Schools and the Greenville Chamber to connect high school students with paid, work-based learning opportunities. Business recruitment for the fall semester is underway. Learn more here.
