Destiniee Jaram is currently a senior in the news and information track, at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, with a minor in African American studies. Jaram wants to cover marginalized communities; she is driven to report on communities that are too often ignored and forgotten in traditional media coverage.


Currently, she works as a writer and a department editor at Southeast Ohio magazine, in addition to reporting for Meigs Independent Press. Destiniee also has an ongoing public relations internship with the Mount Zion Historical Preservation Society, in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

Jaram grew up in a suburb 20-miles southwest of Cleveland with her two sisters and mother, and their many beloved Pitbulls. She is also an avid lover of salt-water taffy and high-quality journalism.

Previously, she has worked as a multimedia reporter for the public news station, WOUB—based in Athens, Ohio—and freelanced for several online publications as well. Jaram has received multiple awards and scholarships from a plethora of organizations during her four years at Ohio University.


Destiniee Jaram is graduating in May 2021 and is actively seeking full-time, paid professional experience.
