Malaizsa Peters

Malaizsa Peters calls herself the next Kaitie Couric and plans to follow in Couric’s footsteps by majoring in broadcast journalism.  The 17-year-old Tylertown resident plans to attend The University of Southern Mississippi this fall.  Peters graduated from high school ranking eighth in her class and was also class president. Singing, listening to music, and spending time with her sister is what she enjoys doing in her free time. Peters describes herself as “nosy” and “loud” and said that she was once called a “living microphone.”
