Admission essay excerpt:

I said “I Do” to a career in media when I was only 16 years old. I grew up listening to the radio and started believing that some day, I’ll be able to work in one. I was 16, and in second year high school when the local radio station had an opening for a college level intern.  I was disappointed to hear about the college level requirement, but I didn’t let it stop me from making my dreams come true.
