Benjamin McKnight III - Communications Analyst


Born in Hampton, Virginia, Benjamin McKnight III spent much of his life growing up in southern Maryland after stops in Michigan and Florida. He graduated from Morgan State University in May 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in multimedia journalism.

While at Morgan State, Benjamin was the editor-in-chief of the student newspaper during his junior and senior years. At the same time, he was in the Reserve Officer Training Corps and received his commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserves upon graduation.

Benjamin fell in love with writing through sports but used his time as the student editor-in-chief to become an all-around balanced writer who can cover a plethora of subjects, a strength he brings to the Vox Optima team.

In addition to writing, Benjamin has been an avid photographer for almost a decade. His other hobbies include bowling and working out.
