Leslie Smith is a senior at Temple University majoring in journalism with a specialization in Spanish. Journalism gives me the opportunity to write, teach, and express my admiration for nature. I also get to incorporate my favorite hobby, which is traveling. I was born and raised in the City of Brotherly Love, but I have traveled to 12 states and three continents. My goal is to visit all 50 U.S. states and all seven continents. (Maybe six; I’m still debating Antarctica.) I am extremely excited to be a part of the Jenna Communications family. I’m looking forward to networking, serving clients and getting hands-on event planning experience. Stop by Jenna Communications headquarters to say Hola.

Erin Ritter of Casey Cares Foundation made her Philly media debut with the ever-jovial crew on Fox 29 Good Day. She spoke about Casey Cares’ mission to provide enriching programs to critically ill children and their families throughout the entire year. Sometimes they go to the circus, to the zoo or have pajama parties. Did you know there is a Superman logo on the shirt? This is very symbolic because the organization views every Casey Cares child as a super hero. Visit their website to learn how you can get involved, and check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
