Richard Forbes

Richard Forbes, or “Richie,” is a senior in College Academy at Broward College in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He enjoys writing, both informational and creative, and he hopes to write for print journalism, specifically National Geographic. He would like to leave Florida for college, ideally¬† moving farther north to expand his horizons. Richard’s first interaction with WJMC was this past summer and was his farthest trip from home! His adventure with the Red Group gave him both an education in journalism and friends he continues to speak with daily. He cannot put into words just how excited he is to be working behind the scenes this summer!
