Q: What were your biggest accomplishments?
A: My biggest accomplishments have been my academics over the past years. Studying
at OCC has been a huge privilege, and I am very proud of how far I have come and what
I have accomplished. I also am proud of my internship that OEC helped me get. I am
now making videos for the City of Farmington Hills.
Q: What are you most proud of?
A: My photography and video skills that I have learned over the years. Because of these
skills, I have gained a lot of connections and experience in interpersonal communications.
I thank Professor Jack Cronin and Professor Nick Valenti for teaching me some of the
skills I have learned. And through these experiences, I have gained a job at a nonprofit
organization as the media programmer and director.
Q: What type of support did you receive from faculty over the past year?
A: Counselor Rasheedah Wright has been a huge help in getting me the information and
resources that I needed to accomplish my goals. She has encouraged me to keep pursuing
my goals and really showed care in me and my academic future.
Q: What are the next steps for you after leaving OCC?
A: I’m going to take a gap year to work and save money. I got accepted into Oakland
University and hope to get a bachelor's degree in business and major in marketing.
Because I will have my Associates Degree in Cinematic Arts, I hope to learn how to
market my videos and start my own business in video production making commercials
Q: From the lessons you learned in the past year, what advice would you give to future
A: Make a plan and stick to it. It will seem very hard at times, but that is how you
know it is worth it. If things come easy, you are not growing. It is important to
put yourself in challenging situations so you can grow and learn how to overcome them.
