LaRae Burress –– New Media Reporter, Spring 2014
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. –Bill Cosby
I’m the girl that’s dabbling in a little bit of this and a little more of that trying to figure out exactly where my true passion lies. Intrigued by the exciting life of “lights, camera, action” I’m not quite sure where I fit yet. Majoring in Emerging Technology and Multimedia with a minor in Dance, I’m still trying to create a career out of it. Becoming the Multimedia Reporter for The Rocket here at Slippery Rock is definitely a new experience and it will challenge me every day, but it will better me as I aspire for a career in this field. Being able to bring events to life through video and then seeing the final product is one of the best feelings. When I see others enjoying my work I know that my hard work and creativity paid off. I just want to have the luxury of working hard and enjoying myself at the same time.
It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live. –Mae Jemison
