Jaylin Clinch has been selected to represent Florida Memorial University at this year’s White House Press Briefing with HBCU student journalists in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, February 23, 2023.
Clinch, 24, a Communications Major and native Miamian, will meet with Keisha Lance Bottoms, Senior Advisor to the President for Public Engagement, featuring a visit from Vice President Kamala Harris.
This will be the first in-person HBCU student journalists briefing since COVID.
Clinch who is one of six siblings said he’s sincerely honored to represent his family, the Lion community, and his Gamma Beta Chi Fraternity, Inc.
“Not too many people can say that they’ve met the Vice President of the United States,” said Clinch. “For me to have this opportunity to meet VP Harris, to shake her hand, to ask her a question as a representative of Florida Memorial University will be a moment I’ll never forget. I am so thankful; I am blessed beyond words.”
Clinch and FMU’s Communications Marketing Director, Sharee Gilbert, will fly out of MIA tomorrow morning.
