Representing the Tri-state area, SpokenYouth is a monthly radio show highlighting youth perspectives on different contemporary topics. This series, in its second season, is organized in collaboration with WHYY’s Pathways to Media Careers youth employment program with support from our mentors in the radio department.
SpokenYouth is hosted by three student representatives using the platform of radio to discuss their interests and concerns.
Mya Blackwood is currently a senior at Penn Foster virtual school and lives in Philadelphia. This year, she plans to work hard towards her goals of working while doing what she loves. She is a part of Spoken Youth because of her love to inspire and of the media.
Yaelies Terron is currently a senior at Glassboro High School (Glassboro, NJ). Next year, she plans to go to college and study design so that she can eventually become an art director. She is a part of Spoken Youth because she wants to develop her speaking and communication skills. She also likes the idea of being able to collaborate with a group of people to create a recording that others will listen to.
Eva Murphy is currently a junior at Parkway Northwest High School for Peace and Social Justice (Philadelphia, PA). She plans to learn how to use podcast technology, continue growing as a journalist, and maybe begin her own podcast. She is a part of Spoken Youth because she loves to talk about different subjects and relate to others, along with being able to use her voice to help and entertain the younger generations.
