Being in LA truly inspires you. When you’re day to day in a reality where celebrities and big timers all reside, you have no choice but to be motivated to aspire to a higher level. I didn’t realize just how ambitious I was until I got here. Fast forward 3 months and here I am with an entirely different perspective on everything. I’m a little different than the rest of the students here. I’m super new age media — not at all concerned with TV ratings, agencies, or being a PA on set. My internship has a ping pong table and people ride hover boards around the office. It’s a startup culture. The best part is I love what I’m doing… as an intern. It gets even better, though, I don’t even want to be in an office. I want to pursue my own ideas and business ventures. I want to create. I want to inspire. This is starting to sound like a motivational speech and or stream of conscious from someone who is high on dopamine. That’s it, though. LA does this to you — it inspires you. The people you meet here can take your dream and turn it into a reality, you just have to want it enough. Your actions have to carry out your desires. For prospective students thinking about coming to LA for a semester: stop thinking — just get here.
