SPAErinIt was not until I stood at that podium collecting my awards for Talent and Arts and Entertainment that I began to realize that I had a new confidence- a new fire in my belly. It was not until I chatted with numerous professionals in the industry that I began to realize how lucky I was to be so sure of my ambitions because my dreams only gave me a jumpstart on this wild journey. And finally, it was not until I listened to student after student speak so eloquently about a common passion that I began to realize I was not alone.

This award endorsed my skills, allowing me to confidently go after some of the most competitive internships and jobs in theBianca03 375 industry. Without this award, I was merely a student who had some videos under belt and knew how to produce a newscast. With this award, though, I am a competitive player in the battle for ever-fleeting journalism jobs.
