Hailey Marston

Staff

Hailey Marston was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida.  She grew up in a sheltered home and school until 11th grade when she transferred to public school.  She had begun writing and doing photography at 10 years old and realized the unique way she perceived the world, but transferring to public school opened her up to more than she could have imagined.  After exploring a wide variety of practical majors, worried that writing would not be a stable major, she decided that it was too important to let go and searched until she found something practical yet creative.  She is graduating TCC this spring and will be transferring to FSU to get her degree in editing, writing, and media.  Hailey’s favorite part of media and journalism is the interaction and collaboration with other creative minds while still being able to express her individual views and perception of events and life.
