Are you involved in Honors/Leadership Scholars/MLK Scholars/Park Scholars Programs?

Have you been engaged in research, internship opportunities, student teaching, or conferences? 

I have led a discussion on Bi-Erasure for the Student Leadership Institute. The core values of ICTV revolves around student teaching and collaboration.

My script idea Hanging On: By A Thread was selected for the PitchNY Conference hosted by the Tribeca Film Institute, NBC Universal and the NY Governor Cuomo’s Office of Motion Picture & Television Development. This experience led to an internship as an Office Production Assistant for Season 2 of Couples Therapy on Showtime with Loveless Entertainment. I have also recently been volunteering with Women's Weekend Film Challenge and their virtual panelist series connecting and educating women in the industry through the ongoing pandemic.

Why did you choose Ithaca College?

I chose Ithaca because of all the opportunities the Park School has to offer – when I saw PPECS and the studio spaces, I just knew.
