The Rocket

LaRae Burress
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
