It was in the 6th Grade where Ja’Leah Davis discovered her love and passion for all things media. While beginning the 6th grade Ja’Leah was approached with the opportunity of reading the news that will broadcast in all the class rooms at the top of the morning. When she was first approached of course she was nervous, but it was in that moment when the lights were shining and that red light on the camera began to blink you could hear the director ending that countdown, all eyes were on her and It gave her a feeling she never wanted to let go of. Media then became a second language for Ja’Leah she finished the rest of her middle school years in that position and lucky for her the High School had a broadcast department as well, which is where she found how fluent she could be in front and behind the camera. With major roles such as becoming the producer , director , content creator , and talent , She later picked up her Name MediaEyeCon because everything she did in media was so Iconic that name became her. She excelled in the many projects and opportunities that were presented to her. She stayed in that broadcasting program throughout her high school years and went on to Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches Texas.
In college Ja’Leah created many programs for her college peers, being that the school’s population of African Americans was low she felt that more events needed to cater everyone from all backgrounds. She created events such as “ The SFA Grammy Awards” which gave appreciation to active students on campus as well as a voice to students and teaching them how important it is to vote. She held the title of Vice president for the National Broadcast Society for 2 years and traveled with he colleague Crystal Holmes to conferences around the world. In her senior year she held the title of Stephen F. Austin State University 2013 Homecoming Queen which was a major accomplishment given the percentage of African Americans. Ja’Leah Davis graduated May 2014 with her B.A. in Mass Communications ( Broadcast Journalism ) with a emphasis in Production.
Leaving College Ja’Leah did not stop. Two months after graduating Ja’Leah was offered a position as an editor at a Houston Local television station where she soon had her own television show called “ Media Eyecon Live “ which aired daily. She interviewed A list and B List celebrities from all around the world but a year later she realized she wanted more. Ja’Leah’s hard work brought major awareness to the station and was then promoted to Vice President at the age of 24. She remained at the Houston Local station until she realized her purpose was bigger than her. December 23rd 2017 Ja’Leah Davis became the youngest African American Woman to own a digital television station nation wide!
