I have always been able to effortlessly develop a good rapport with people around me, so it comes as a natural fit that I work in public service at the AADL! Libraries are an asset to us now more than ever, so being able to help patrons find and disseminate information and resources that we offer is very important to me. My time is also being spent as an intern with CTN, our public-access TV station here in town. I am providing support to their programming department, and would like to use my talents to contribute interviews with local citizens. Finally, I have also done interviews with authors and filmmakers through MTTV, a new media company that wants to help grow the community of Highland Park, MI by staging concernts, events and festivals, with all of us providing the coverage. Most of my work with them has been put on hold while they re-structure and move their offices. Since graduating, I have learned to wear many hats to survive and gain experience. My main goal is to work in sports broadcasting, and/or in athletic media relations. Persistence and positivity are some of the hardest things to maintain, but I know that with my talent and determination, I can achieve what I want to do!
