Jewels Phraner


Brief Biography: Jewels Phraner is a senior newspaper journalism student. She has reported on the Missourian’s public life beat, as well as for The Maneater, MU’s student newspaper, and the Peoria (Ill.) Journal Star.

Hometown: Murrieta, Calif., which is halfway between San Diego and Orange County


My Career Goals: Step One: graduate. Step two: find a job.

Why Journalism Interests Me: I want to get to know people. I want to find out about things, situations and communities different from what I know. I like exploring societal subcultures and social trends. And I want people to know what’s going on in their city. I want to explain how conversations between city council members affect their neighborhood or their favorite local coffee shop. And I want readers to trust what they read.

Other Interests: Hip-Hop, history and reading non-fiction, usually written by other journalists
