Favorite WSU experience
My favorite part of my academic experience has been pursuing a dual degree and a minor. It’s been quite the journey, but I’m fortunate to have gained a wide range of knowledge and experience through my studies in communications, political science, and film.
WSU has provided so many opportunities to apply what I’ve learned in the classroom to the real world. For example, I write for the Huffington Post, LA Times, and USA Today. On campus, I helped create and produce Cable 8’s first documentary show, Inside Out. I then used my Cable 8 skills to produce and direct my own documentary in Somaliland over the summer of 2016.
I plan to be a professional storyteller, either in journalism or film, and give a voice to those who are underrepresented in our community.
