I just want to tell you a little about why I chose telecommunications as my major. I love talking and I love getting to know and connect with people so for me being able to tell someones story is such a gift. It is crazy to think that you are able to show people who someone is or what they do in such a positive light. I specifically chose entertainment news because I like talking about the good rather than the bad. UF has one of the top telecommunications programs in the U.S. so it is such a privileged to be going through this program. Life as a journalist at UF is incredible because of all the opportunities that are available to us. You have the chance to work with some of the most prestigious professionals in the industry and learn what it takes to get to the top. Erin Andrews is one of my favorite reporters and the fact that she went through the same program that I am going through is mind blowing to me. It shows that we have just as good a chance of making it big in this industry as the next person. It is also inspiring to see the amount of people that succeed and then are
able to come back and speak to students about how they started their careers.
The CMIR contains content that students create and share with the world. It is a great tool for students as they are able to produce their own work and learn from others.
