I had the honor of being selected for the Most Promising Multicultral Program - class of 2016. One to two students per participating college are selected nationally for a one-week immersive program that catapults multicultural students into the advertising industry.
The week long program took place in New York City where all the major agencies in the area gave us tours, inspirational speeches, portfolio reviews, networking opportunities, interviews, and much more.
Promoting diversity and paving the way for more aspiring professionals in the industry is a personal mission of mine. Although the week flew by, it was an incredible experience finding out what the industry was all about. I grew an incredible network, found out what I wanted, and have lit a fire in me ever since!
