Rodricka is a Dillard University student and one of eight siblings. She says this about her passion, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 My faith in God is what keep me going despite life struggles. I know my challenges are not just for my own development but to share and help others.”
She is part of the Dillard University Multimedia Journalism, Class of 2020 and her dream job would be able to work in the entertainment industry covering stories in such media.
After finishing her internship with KLFY, here is what she had to say, on her Instagram about her experience.

Since given this opportunity I have been trying to formulate the words of how I would share the amazing experience I had interning with KLFY @klfy_10 (channel 10 news) this summer! I have learned so much about my craft and bonded with so many passionate people from start to finish. ***Here come the tears 😭 *** I have been awaiting a chance for so long and after being told no so many times I was about ready to give up on my dream. But I thank God KLFY took me in and helped mold and shaped me to become better. A good friend of mine told me to look at NO as Next Opportunity and that’s what I did. I am grateful & I am ready for the next opportunity. Senior year let’s go! ❤️
