Bella Ball is Good Faith Media’s Ernest C. Hynds Jr. intern for summer 2023.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to apply my skills in a way that relates to my faith,” Ball said. “I’m especially looking forward to being able to contribute to podcasts and articles connecting the gospel to the present day.”

Ball is studying Management Information Systems with a minor in Data Science at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. After graduation, she plans on pursuing a career in data science.

“Good Faith Media is very excited about Bella joining the team this summer,” said Mitch Randall, CEO of Good Faith Media. “GFM interns can engage in practical media production and publication. Bella’s talents and skills will be a true blessing.”

Launched in the fall semester of 2020, 16 people, including Ball, have served as Ernest C. Hynds Jr interns. Brief reflections from previous interns are available here.

A gift from the foundation of First Baptist Church of Athens, Georgia, where Ernest Hynds was a beloved member, helped establish the internship program. Hynds was a professor and department head in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia.
