Graduation & BeyondGraduation in itself will be a great accomplishment. I am the only female in my family to have a Bachelor’s degree, and I will be the only one with a master’s degree. With this I will be able to enter the entertainment industry with an intellectual advantage. I will have the skills, techniques, and experience that will be sought out. My goal is to have interview set up months prior to graduation, so when the day arrives I will have opportunities lined up. Leaving graduation I will know if Law School is the next step for me, or if Marketing and Promotions is where I am meant to be. Either way, this 12 month program will provide the tools I need to succeed, on a personal and industrial level.
