Last year at this time I was bundled up in the cold Syracuse weather. I was contemplating my future plans, debating on if it would be worth my time to come to Los Angeles for the semester. After discussing my future with my friends and family I came to the conclusion that it would be in my best interest to go to Los Angeles. After being here for a month, I am already appreciative of my decision. In the short amount of time I’ve been here I have travelled the coast of Los Angeles, dabbled my taste buds in some of the finest cuisines, made new friends, gained invaluable work experience, and more importantly narrowed down my area of interest within the communications field. If unsure about coming out to Los Angeles, understand that there is nothing to lose by participating in this program, with only things to gain.
