Messenger publisher covers Steph Curry's golf debut


The Hampton Roads Messenger's publisher, Angela Jones, recently traveled

to Hayward,

California to cover two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry's first professional golf event at the Tour's Ellie Mae Classic. Ms. Jones, an avid golfer, was asked to cover the Ellie Mae Classic for a local

Va. Hampton University – senior

Ayanna Bozeman is just 20 years old and already making a name for herself.

The strategic communications

major has

taken her classroom training and her knowledge of social media to build a lucrative business and brand through YouTube.

With today’s informa-

tion-driven youth looking for honest, unscripted and unbiased perspectives, Bozeman picked the perfect time to capitalize on that trend. Today, she has a following of 28,000 on YouTube.


But success didn’t come Bozeman


her YouTube channel just a year ago. She started with a small following -- anywhere from 30 to 50 views with each new video. And, for the amount of effort she was putting into

each post, she was tempted to quit. Her rise in popularity netted her notice on CNBC. com, which recently featured her in a story about entrepre- neurship.

“It took a lot of effort to shoot and edit it all myself, but I told myself to stay consistent and see where it goes,” said Bozeman.

Her determination

certainly paid off. Bozeman’s YouTube channel brings in a nice monthly paycheck, thank you. In addition, some of her viewers have begun offering Bozeman paid opportunities to review their products.

For years, Bozeman had ideas to start her own vlog. After

some encouragement

from her peers, she took the bull by the horns, grabbed a camera and started filming. She filmed and wrote about as much as she could, then posted it on YouTube.

publication, The Hampton Roads Golf Guide.

The story is a personal one for Ms. Jones, who attended Virginia Tech, the alma mater of Mr. Curry's parents. "Steph's father, Dell Curry, who played for the

Hampton Roads Messenger Publisher, Angela Jones with Steph Curry. Read Ms. Jones' coverage of Steph Curry at

Charlotte Hornets, is one of the nicest and down to earth people on earth and Steph did not fall far from the proverbial tree," said Ms. Jones.


According to Ms. Jones, "Steph Curry cordial

throughout the stressful

situation of competing with professional golfers in front of his adoring fans." Mr. Curry did not disappoint, shooting a 74 on both days.

Unfortunately for the tour, Mr. Curry did not make the cut to continue play on Saturday

and Sunday. He drew a large crowd at an event unheard of by most people who do not play golf. All of social media and news outlets were buzzing about his impressive play. The tournament proceeds will benefit the Warriors Community Foundation and Mr. Curry's decision to play certainly
