Simone E. Canekeratne
Simone grew up in the small beach town of Gulf Breeze, Florida. Her love of reading, writing and storytelling led her to study Communications and Editing, Writing & Media at Florida State University. During her time at FSU, she was required to complete a summer internship, and what better place to work than by the beach? Simone decided to go home to intern with the local ABC News affiliate in Pensacola, where her love of journalism began.
