LA Day 7: Life Lessons Learned

I stayed on Earth today, but that does not mean day five of networking was any less than incredible. The first meeting was with the senior vice president of the Gaumont Film Company, a French-established film studio, and her colleagues. Besides just telling us how they got to where they are and tips abut the… Continue reading LA Day 7: Life Lessons Learned

LA Day 6: To Heaven and Back

Day four of networking proved to be my favorite yet, starting with brunch at the iconic Bobby’s Big Boy (the oldest standing one of the chain) followed by our first meeting at CBS. I was at CBS on Friday with the vice president of daytime programming, but today’s meeting was right up my alley: we… Continue reading LA Day 6: To Heaven and Back

LA Day 5: A Small World

All I can say after the alumni panel of recent Hofstra graduates held at Emerson College we attended is that I am #shook. Not only did they give genuine advice for people wanting to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment, they seemed very serious about being there for us if we… Continue reading LA Day 5: A Small World

LA Day 2: Network and Chill

If your day didn’t start with getting driven in a golf cart by a VP of a company, did your day even start? Well if yours didn’t, let me fill you in: it was awesome! The group got split up for the first half of our second day of networking here in LA, and I,… Continue reading LA Day 2: Network and Chill

LA Day 1: Networking and Fun

I could not have asked for a better first day networking in Los Angeles. Today we visited three companies: Edelman, Paramount Pictures and Magical Elves, had lunch at an influencer-approved spot and found time for some sightseeing. From picking apart the brains of the professionals we met to smiling our way down the Walk of… Continue reading LA Day 1: Networking and Fun

Hello Los Angeles!

I am finally in California! After telling my dad since freshman year of college that I am considering moving to Los Angeles one day, I have made it. This is for a school networking trip, but it’s a start. I hopped off the plane at LAX (did anyone else sing that in their heads?) just… Continue reading Hello Los Angeles!

A Reflection of my Blog 3.0

I can’t believe this is the third year I am reviewing my blog. Similar to last year, I am quite excited with how much I was able to keep up with it this past school year. Last spring, I was finally able to share all my Australian travel videos and over the summer I finally… Continue reading A Reflection of my Blog 3.0

2018: Work Hard, but Play Harder

2016 was all about traveling. 2017 was all about learning to take a break. 2018, I decided, was about pushing myself to my limits and proving that I did not graduate from college for nothing. At the beginning of 2018, I had no idea what was in store for me. I had no plans to… Continue reading 2018: Work Hard, but Play Harder

A Student’s First Time Planning a Trip Abroad

Traveling the world has been such an experience, to say the least, during my time abroad. I never would have thought coming to London would open the door to see so many other new places. Within my semester here at the London College of Fashion I had a two-week period off from classes. Part of… Continue reading A Student’s First Time Planning a Trip Abroad
