GSU Scholarship Foundation for Urban Culture and Affairs: My Portfolio

 The Come Up 

This journey that I’m embarking on is going to help me get through my next 5 years in college. My goal is to build Urban Culture and Affairs, while redefining how black culture (urban culture) is valued. I want to take us to the next level and lead us to take control of our own culture and affairs.

BOOK me
Got my start in Communications from being a Broadcaster, hosting industry mixers for major record labels and concerts

Career Goals

work
Putting in work acting as a Creative Director for a Prom Shoot

 

I will build my own media empire and disseminate urban culture. I am going to continue to develop urban affairs via communication. I am going to contribute my skills and talent to creating policies, establish a commonwealth in my community, develop socioeconomics, business, and performing research for my culture.  Being an Entrepreneur I don’t see myself working for anyone, so I have to use every opportunity that is available for me to do so. My goal is to take on plenty of work that needs to be done, and do it; and position myself where I don’t have to work with or for others any more than necessary. Well at least for the next several months, that’s a short term career goal.

Academic Goals

grad
Graduation from Illinois Center for Broadcasting Class of 2014

As a scholar, my vision is to use my independent practice to fill requirements for my research projects for the courses I take. This will help me get experience, feedback, and the foundation I need to develop myself as an expert. It will also help me get started now versus waiting until I graduate to do so. I am interested in independently creating my own internship but gaining some paid internships to develop any interested skills or hobbies.
