About the Contributors
Senior / Broadcast Journalism
Currently, I am a senior at The Pennsylvania State University studying Broadcast Journalism and New Media Entrepreneurship. A dream of mine has always been to work in the mass media industry with a focus in entertainment journalism. I have been working towards this goal since I was an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, candidate. My interest in this industry began with immense passion in ballet and modern dance at a young age. This desire to be an Entertainment News Broadcast Journalist continued as I watched prominent programs including Oprah, Ellen, Access Hollywood, E! News and the Academy Awards! This past summer, I had the opportunity to work as an interning at CNBC Africa in Lagos, Nigeria. It was a phenomenal opportunity which allowed me to experience how journalism is practiced in another continent mostly comprising developing countries. This has certainly helped me to grow as a journalist.
