Short Intro.  Hey! My name is Melissa Rose! I'm energetic, eager and passionate about different issues in society such as: poverty, homelessness, animal and woman's issues.I love entertainment; being an entertainer as well as being entertained. I'm excited about learning new skills regarding the digital marketing industry.

Where Have I Been? I graduated from Brooklyn College in June 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Television and Radio. I've interned at Feel Up Records, Epic Records as a Promotions Intern and at RCA Records as a Marketing Intern. During college, I wrote for Brooklyn College's Newspaper "The Excelsior" as well as interned and hosted my own radio show at WBCR on campus. Also, along with my multi-camera production class, we've produced live events to an audience such as : college basketball games, graduations and of Grammy Winner Arturo O'Farrell's Latin Jazz concert. I've volunteered at Media Nights on campus as a ticket collector, volunteered to help Feed the Homeless for Thanksgiving and participated in giving out food to low-income families.

Where Am I Now? I joined COOP to learn new skills to overcome unemployment as a recent graduate in the media field. I want to gain more confidence in myself, my skills and have a sense of community. Basically, a connection to a community by being a part of something bigger than myself.  

Where Am I Going? I see myself as a confident, strong willed person that's moving up within the music industry want to move up within the music industry.

ear future plans beyond starting a career in digital marketing (think about the skills you want to develop); 10 years from now (where do you see yourself, what are dreams/goals)

2 Companies I really admire and Why

        

Sony Music Entertainment is a huge company regarding the music industry. It embodies the atmosphere that I want to work in which makes the employees feel special. There's a balance between work and play.Why do you like this company? What makes them special? Is there a leader at this organization you really admire?

       Twitch is an online live streaming platform where broadcasters can release and perform their content in real-time with viewer interaction live. I first found out of Twitch several years ago when I wanted to find a hobby that doesn't involve being the viewer but a content creator. Now as a live broadcaster, I consider Twitch as my second hobby, influencing many individuals around the world with my creative content and entertainment.
