“When you love what you do, is it really work?”
When I first entered college I had a desire to work in the TV/ Entertainment Industry, however, that wasn’t the most comforting thing for my parents to hear. So they told me to take up a business degree. I was excelling in all of my classes but didn’t think that it was where I fit in. One day a friend told me about the Advertising/ PR program at UCF, and after some research – I knew this was where I belonged.
I’ve worked on pitches and won clients over during internships, I’ve crafted Social Media plans for local businesses, and I’ve worked for a radio station producing and promoting content for clients. All of this fueled my desire to be thoroughly involved in the industry. But I never knew what I was getting into until I joined the Multicultural Advertising Internship Program. MAIP places students all over the nation to work at the top advertising companies. I learned just like a sponge – absorbing and developing skills I wasn’t even aware I had, just by being in the presence of these big names. All fueling my desire to continue on in this industry of “Culture Creators”. If you want to learn more about my experience keep reading through! If you want to chat, click here!
