Give us a brief summary of your experience?

I am working as a live video production intern for Penn State Athletics. I learned how to use professional video cameras, operate replay and director's board, as well as chyron. The experience has been positive so far, and I enjoy going to the games.

How did this experience impact you academically?

I learned a lot about video production that will add to my experience and enhance my résumé. Video production, depending on the position that you are in, can be very fast-paced. Knowing how to handle multitasking is important.

"I hope that with this experience, I will become more marketable for the workforce and a stronger candidate."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

To achieve my dream job and work as a communications officer for UNHCR, I needed to be proficient in live video production, as this is a requirement for the job. I hope that with this experience, I will become more marketable for the workforce and a stronger candidate.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The College of the Liberal Arts helped me by providing an enrichment fund. This internship is unpaid, and the support you have provided helped me fund this amazing experience.
