A rising junior at North Carolina A&T State University, Elae is committed to telling stories about his community. As a Multimedia Journalism major, he is the photographer for his campus newspaper as well as a newly inducted member of the National Association of Black Journalists. Hailing from a military family, Elae attended many schools as a child, which helped him to learn to cope in different environments and to adapt to different people and situations. He ultimately wants to use journalism to tell African American stories and give back to the people that gave him so much.
