What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
My upcoming boss and I talked about creating a new video for his home page for viewers. I’m very excited to work on that!
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
I love working in theatre. Since high school I have been a set painter for theatre and have loved getting to work with new techniques and discover my leadership skills. I also love watching old television shows like Mary Tyler Moore and The Dick Van Dyke show. Lastly, I love to watch behind the scenes clips of movies. Learning how to create a whole new environment is very interesting to me and I can’t wait to learn more in upcoming jobs.
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve during your CAPA program?
I want to create something that The Story Department and I are both very proud of.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve during your CAPA program?
I hope to make professional and trustworthy connections with my co-workers and supervisors. I hope to use this as another stepping stone to my career of working in entertainment.
Genuine and honest answers is something my viewers can look forward to. I hope to make videos that are a good representation of what my internship life is like.
