I spoke at UCONN yesterday in Storrs, CT. The campus was BEAUTIFUL and I was so glad that students could come out during the afternoon to listen to me talk about everything internships!
Every once in a while, I post notes that I get from students that really touch me...here is one I received today from a UCONN student...
Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me after the lecture today. Hearing from you is truly inspirational and I appreciate any sort of advice that I can get about working in the film/entertainment field. It is so reassuring to hear from an individual who has asserted herself and succeeded in breaking into the industry, and your encouragement has given me the momentum that I needed to begin the internship process with confidence! It is uncommon for me to hear that pursuing art for film is a realistic possibility, and for the first time I feel like I have a chance. Thank you again for providing me with such a personal and valuable tool in which I can apply for my dream internships!
