What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? I want to study the business side of the creative industry. This will help me well-round myself so I can move forward with producing tv/film.

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I’m excited about the entirety of this program. I’m so grateful to find something that aligns specifically with my career goals. The class I look forward to is “The Power of Pitching and Persuasion” by Laverne A McKinnon who has so much experience in the field of TV/Film. I look forward to site visits because I want to get to know the arts in this wonderful city. Then in the summer I pray I land an internship that is the best for my area of interests.
