By Alicia Lawson, Content Production Intern
Since I can remember, I’ve always been a big city type of person. There is something about walking down a crowded street or catching a subway uptown that excites me. Needless to say, when I first started my college search I had my heart set on schools in the middle of Manhattan. Little did I know that a small liberal arts school in Columbus, OH would steal my heart and lead me to some of the greatest opportunities, including this incredible summer spent with MediaSource.
As a senior at Otterbein University my journey through college was nothing short of me trying every club and class to figure out what I wanted to do. I came in assuming I wanted to be on-camera talent but slowly realized writing and behind the scenes video editing was where I wanted to be. Double majoring in Broadcast Journalism and Public Relations, I slowly started to find my niche. Throughout my first two years I had all of my ambitions and goals set in television production. There was something about the fast-paced, intense energy of a newsroom that really drew me in. It wasn’t until one of my required public relations classes that I started to realize how much I enjoyed writing and working hand in hand with clients and striving to promote them.
So there I was stuck between two passions of video production and public relations. I wanted so badly to morph both together and find the perfect fit for what I enjoy so much. I began my search for internships and had been told by a few friends that MediaSource would be a perfect fit for what I do. Needless to say after some research, I fell in love with the exciting things MediaSource does and how perfectly it fits with the goals I have for my future. Being able to work hand in hand with PR professionals while also learning and creating exciting video production elements made this internship a dream come true.
I’m excited for the opportunity to spend my summer with MediaSource and can’t wait to continue learning and building new skills. The small team atmosphere is so welcoming and really creates a fun and energetic work environment. I know this incredible opportunity will help with my future and I’m truly honored to be able to work at such a great place and be apart of the Content Production team.
