Meet ECHOboom intern – Trenyce Williams. She is currently in her junior year at Tuskegee University, majoring in Communications, from Los Angeles California.
This is her introductory blog.
When people find out I am from Los Angeles they often ask why I chose to come to all the way to Tuskegee University. The simplest way to answer that question is because of my desire to attend an HBCU. I toured 7 HBCU’s through the “Stepping in the Right Direction” HBCU touring program. We went to Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Florida A&M University, Miles College, Alabama State University; but in my eyes, none of them compared to Tuskegee University. I loved the energy that the tour guides had and I also found comfort in them because they were from California as well. I was captured by the beauty and the history of this school. No other school we went to had a history as raw as this one. Plus, they brought us here on a good Fried Chicken Wednesday, and after that I was sold! After the tour, I knew this is where I wanted to be.
I am a very passionate writer. I aspire to be a screenwriter because I love how writers like Shonda Rhimes and Issa Rae can evoke so much emotion from an audience and leave us hanging in suspense for the next episode. I would love to be able to create my own content that will leave people anxious for more. I also want to be a casting director so that I can add more diversity to the entertainment industry and get some new and hungry talent out there. In addition to writing and casting, I am interested in public relations and entertainment law. The next time Chris Brown, Katt Williams, or the Kardashian/Jenners are under fire I could be the one to write their apology letters to the public!
Since I do love writing, ECHOboom is a great opportunity for me. It will help me hone my writing and editing skills, while also pushing me to be more involved in activities on and off campus. I want to provide an additional perspective to ECHOboom, and keep my work entertaining; yet informative. I look forward to bettering myself and my writing through this experience!
