Women in Film & Television Scholarship Recipient

Quick update: Last year, November 2017, I recieved the WIFTA, Women in Film & Television Atlanta scholarship award.

I was extremely grateful to recieved the WIFTA 2017 Scholarship award. I was called on a Friday morning right after my interview with Fox 5 News. Michelle Rivera, one of the committee members, surprised me by asking if I was available to attend their annual gala that Saturday! It was the best weekend ever! Some of the top networks and production companies were at the Gala. Here’s to the next generation of women filmmakers. ha!

Rupert Murdoch and Fox Ideology Influences

Recently after the terrorist attack in France, Rupert Murdoch’s controversial tweet has the entire twitter community lashing back.

In essence, Murdoch seems to blame all Muslims for the terror attacks by calling the jihadist, their cancer.

Because Murdoch has a huge influence on media, How does this affect the representation in the news?

I worry most for the media production students like myself; we are entangled by free thought in education but forced to work with bias corporations in order to obtain a real career in media.

 

 

Clayton State Spring Semester

Welcome CSU Lakers! This year will be a great one. While some are preparing for their student ids, some are preparing for the semester mentally…it could all be frustrating. The following is a few helpful tips to start your semester off smoothly:

  • Book money is available in your Laker card account from January 5 – 20, 2015 (here’s the tip), go early morning. Most students go mid-day/evening and towards the end of the week which causes long lines. Also, if you can do without a purse or bag, that also saves waiting in line because you will have to stop and drop your bag off before entering the bookstore.

  • Parking is rough, give yourself 10 to 15 minutes for parking before class time.

  • Wear comfortable shoes, this is huge campus and most likely you’ll have classes in different buildings.

  • You don’t have to buy a whole lot of school supplies, at least wait until the first week of class, your professor will guide you and let know what you really need. As a student, money is tight, you might not have to use those 5 spiral notebooks you bought. Most professors allow you to take notes on a laptop.

  • Don’t act shy or stuck up. You don’t have to be everyone’s best friend but in each class, find someone you can exchange numbers with. This benefits you, in case you miss a day and need someone to put you back to speed in the course.

  • Prepare your body. If this is not your first semester, than you are most likely dreading the return from the holiday break. The week prior to your return, get out the house and just do things, take a walk, go bowling with friends, anything; you are cultivating alertness for your body so that first week you’re not so sleepy in class.
