Filming and video editing for me has started out as just a fun little hobby I enjoyed to do throughout my high school days. I didn’t think I was going to be studying it in college until I realized that Environmental Science was really not my strong suit. After transferring from Washington College to Slippery Rock University, I switched my major to Communication with a track in Digital Media Productions to further my hobby to more than just that. I applied to work for the Rocket Newspaper as the Multimedia Reporter and after one full school year of being a part of the staff, I decided to give it another shot. Working for the Rocket has definitely expanded my filming and editing skills and has given me a ton of experience working in the media world. From filming sporting events to club events, getting to interview and talk to a large number of students and professors around campus, even a few artists and comedians that have come to campus to perform, it’s been an incredible journey and I’m excited to spend my senior year of college doing it all over again. The staff members have helped me along the way, giving me new ideas and feedback on the videos for our paper. This job is a lot, and I mean a lot of work, but it’s definitely worth it and I’m glad I have the opportunity to showcase my talent along with having the opportunity to meet lots of new people through this job as the multimedia reporter. It’s not only a great experience in the learning aspect but also with creating amazing new memories.
