Meet Iris Montes
A True Blue Senior in the Dept. of Electronic Media Communication, Iris Montes wants
to burst into the world of media journalism and completely reinvent it. The Jacksonville,
Fla., native believes that the media world today is too robotic and should focus more
on connecting to human emotion. Iris says that one of the highlights of her life so
far was teaching children at an elementary school on how to properly treat one another.
A firm believer in the Bahá'í Faith, this media journalist seeks to break away from
classic journalism in order to create media that is non-traditional and celebratory
of diversities in this world. She aspires to complete this task by working for Univision
and then tapping into entrepreneurship by owning her very own network/channel in the
future. This drive for success is what will undoubtedly give her a voice in the real
world, and we are so proud to have her as one of our own in the College of Mass Communication.
