JoJo Drake


My name is JoJo Drake and I am the Bee Downtown media-relations intern. While I was not Tar Heel born, I most certainly was Tar Heel bred. I was born in the DC area, but raised in small-town USA – Farmville, North Carolina. I am a senior at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill majoring in political science and minoring in English, but have spent the past three years exploring my passion for nonprofit work and developing my knack for public relations. Now that I am working for Bee Downtown, that passion is expanding into the realm of startup and entrepreneurial businesses. Bee Downtown struck the chord with me because I believe innovation happens at the intersection of multiple fields. Bee Downtown is the prime example of that as it is an intersection of several different fields: sustainable agriculture, education, and one-of-a-kind marketing. I am so happy to be working for a company with such an important cause. It really is remarkable to have found a place where I can not only work, learn and grow, but where my many creative pursuits culminate together into one!
