The Nashville PRIDE introduces their summer intern Patrick Lewis, a native of Memphis, Tenn. Patrick came to Nashville in the fall of 2009 to attend the historic HBCU Tennessee State University.
“I was torn between a major in biology or political science, before I decided that communication would be my major,” Lewis said.
Once in the department, he focused completely on journalism.
“Writing was something that I had always enjoyed doing, even when I was in elementary school,” Lewis said.
While in his third year at TSU he joined The Meter (TSU’s campus newspaper) staff learning the ins and outs of writing. In the spring of 2014 Lewis will graduate from TSU. Following his graduation, he plans to move to Chicago, Ill., where he intends to further his writing career.
