McCann Summer Internship 2015: My Truth
By: Alverneq Lindsay
Some people don't understand the challenges that come with being creative... so many ideas, so little time
Some people underestimate the power of words and images.
When questioned about being a media major I am met with assumtions that the decision was an easy one...
Sure I'm creative and "right-brained", but my chosen path consistently challenges me. I learned to cultivate my ability to communicate and empathize with people. My passion for media enhanced my ability to be:
Very impressive disciplines.
But so are media, creative writing, and film!
My strength is in my words and my ability to impact others.
I believe in using media and advertising as a platform to empower and inform others.
Intelligence is not confined to a specific descipline as some may assume.
Knowing how to convey a message to a broad audience is equally as challenging.
My truth is that it took me nearly twenty-one years to realize words are just as powerful as numbers!
