Chloe Coy photoRaven Moody launched into her career after an internship on Channel 13 News. Her major was in journalism with a minor in Africana Studies. TV broadcasting was something she was good at and passionate about. Then she published a memoir, Growing Beyond my Yesterday to share her testimony on overcoming each situation she encountered. “My biggest thing is helping others learn from my journey, my experiences, and I want to see everyone succeed in life no matter what their environmental factors were growing up.” Today, Raven is a Certified Christian Life Coach and Mentor. — Raven Moody, 2016
