Jamai Lindsey Harris
Sugar and spice and everything nice can be used to describe 16-year-old Jamai Lindsey Harris.
“Once you get past the sour, I’m actually really sweet,” Harris said. “I’m like a Sour Patch kid.”
Harris lives in Frisco, Texas, but was born and raised in New Orleans. She lived in the “boot” state for 10 years before relocating to Texas for her father’s job.
Since seventh grade, Harris has found a love for broadcasting by always being around a video camera. She will be the senior producer in her broadcasting class at the Career and Technical Education Center.
“I like the big-girl cameras,” Harris said. “Not the baby ones.”
Besides preparing for her dream to be a television news anchor, Harris spends her time shopping, dancing, working at a snow cone stand and listening to Beyoncé.
Her love for broadcast comes from her desire to reach a broad audience in a way that everyone can understand.
