Larry was born and raised in a small city in Michigan referred to as Hazel Park. As a child, he attended the Hazel Park School district for his entire educational career. After receiving his high school diploma from Hazel Park High School, Larry decided to further his education and begin working on two Associate degrees (Liberal Arts ALA.ALA, Broadcasting Arts Technology BAT.ALA ) at Oakland Community College (Royal Oak campus).
While being a student at the local community college, he took a high interest and excelled in the communication and intensive writing courses that were offered. Larry’s interest to the communication and writing classes helped him develop motivation and passion for journalism.
While being a part of Oakland Community College’s student population, Larry endured horrific experiences that helped shaped the open minded person he is today. For example, during his sophomore year of college, he lost his older brother and witnessed his mother go into surgery numerous times because of her glaucoma. However, these negative experiences did not distract him from his studies. In May 2014, Larry received two Associate degrees. After receiving his first two degrees, he decided to support higher learning and transfer to Wayne State University as a Broadcasting Journalism major.
Today, Larry is an honor student at Wayne State, who is actively involved in campus life. For example, he serves as Vice President of the University’s Black Student Union, he’s an orientation leader, he’s a part of Journalism Institute for Media Diversity, he writes for the school newspaper (The South End), he was a part of Wayne State’s first ever gender inclusive homecoming court, and many more.
However, aside from being involved on campus, Larry is also indulged in the journalism field. For instance, he has done freelance photography for local newspapers and magazines, he served as an on air reporter for a local TV station covering features, he currently co-host an on campus radio show, and he works for WSU’S HIGH Program as the PR/Film Intern. Larry considers his beat to be investigative news and wants to enlighten viewers of his blog with current, local, hard hitting news.
