Summary

Genuinely interested in communications and public affairs within the media and entertainment industry. Having interned the past two summers, with MTV Networks in Public Affairs, Corporate Responsibility, and Corporate Communications, I have had the experience of leveraging the power of MTV to push its viewers towards socially responsibility. Studies have demonstrated that values are no longer taught through family and religion first, but rather through the media and entertainment industry, thus I know working with corporations in the entertainment industry will help shape and focus generations to come.
