A lifelong interest and a long-time dream

Thanks for joining me!

I have worked in the communications field for many years in various roles: staff writer,  newspaper and newsmagazine editor, Public Relations consultant, Management Consultant, and now Chief Public Information Officer for a governmental agency in Chicago. Fascinated by how technology has transformed and continues to innovate this field, I chose to pursue a master’s in communications to gain a deeper understanding and increased knowledge and aptitude in this bold, digital world. My future goal is to create a successful Web-based business.

To attend the Newhouse School at Syracuse University has been a long-time dream for me and I am very excited to have this opportunity through communications@syracuse to now embark on this journey.

I’ve been an inquisitive observer of life and avid writer since I was an 8-year-old with my first diary/journal.  I see my blog, StrongMind with Jalyne Strong, as a continuation of my observations on the world in which we live; I’m eager to delve into the aspects of culture, creativity, contemporary concerns, and digital communication.

As the editor of AFRIQUE Newsmagazine, I shared a copy with actor Isaiah Washington in Chicago in the summer of 2011.
