Home Away From Home
By Alli Reich
From the second I landed at LAX last summer to do my first Hollywood internship, I knew LA was where I was meant to be. The sun, the mountains, the beaches, everything was like a dream. I loved it so much that this summer I decided to come back for another internship and continue my time here for the SULA Semester. Not a second goes by where I regret that decision.
Living and working in LA these past couple of months has shown me sides of the industry I didn’t even know I loved. For example, working at a talent agency was something I was sure I wouldn’t like, but after my summer internship at one, I decided I wanted to spend my fall semester at another, soaking up everything I could possibly get my hands on. I’ve gotten to read the hottest scripts, learned how to cover desks, met some of the biggest agents in Hollywood, and so much more.
My experience at SULA thus far has truly solidified my passion not only for the entertainment industry, but for my new home away from home, the city of Los Angeles.
