Jacob D Henry
Student and Writer in Uniontown, Pennsylvania
Jacob Henry is an aspiring writer from Groveland, a small town in Florida. His love of writing was forged from a tragedy that almost claimed his ability to walk. It was his insatiable curiosity and unwillingness to allow anything to hold him back that gave him time to explore his vast imagination and the fantastic worlds that he created by sheer force of will.
Graduating from Full Sail University with a BFA in Creative Writing for Entertainment, Jacob received two course director awards and was Valedictorian of his graduate class. While there, he discovered his affinity for television writing. He is currently working on his Master’s Degree in Journalism, working for internships, and building his portfolio.
The stories he produces tend to focus on some aspect of the human condition, whether that is a mental illness or trauma one is suffering from or just by telling their story. His hope as a journalist is to shine a light on the mental health issues that are plaguing this country and giving them a voice that they might not have themselves.
