Welcome our Newest Campus Ambassador Colby, From Pace University
My name is Colby, I am a junior Communications major, political science minor at Pace University on the Westchester campus. I’m very involved at Pace, I’m a member of the softball team, in the Pforzheimer Honors College, Arts and Entertainment editor at the school newspaper, and this year I am the president of the New York Women in Communications Inc. group that a professor and myself formed at my school and have also been accepted into both the Golden Key International Honor Society, and the Communication Honor Society Alpha Chi Rho. My true passion however, lies with the internships I’ve had and future ones I hope to get. In the fall of my sophomore year I interned at RNN Television studios in Westchester as a production intern. While I was there I worked very closely with the producers and learned how to research, write for television, and work in a fast paced studio setting. I also got to go out into the field on Election Day and work with a reporter and cameraman at one of the candidates’ campaign sites. This past summer I interned at FoxNews.com as an editorial intern. I was working there full time and it was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. I met so many interesting people and actually got to write, edit, and research my own stories (I also got some bragging rights from meeting celebrities.) This fall I’m interning at the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley three days a week. I’ve been here for three weeks and it has been an adrenaline rush. Working for a live show has been so thrilling, and I’m hoping the longer I’m here the cooler stuff I’ll get to do. I think people would like to read about my interning experiences because 1. I’m a total news junkie and a lot of people can relate to that 2. My life is pretty much a balancing act and along the way I’ve picked up some good tips on how to not lose your mind while in college and 3. I have an ultimate goal of interning at every major news network in Manhattan and people might be interested to see if I can actually do it. At every internship I’ve had I’ve had the biggest ups and downs of my life, I’ve felt intimidated, excited, scared, curious, and it’s made me look forward to my future career more than I ever have before.
