Journalism Testimonial


– I wanted to know if
maybe you had anything else you wanted to add to the topic that we were talking about today. My name is Rebecca Pilozo Melara. I’m in my final year of the journalism, print and broadcast
program at Humber College. (pulsing instrumental music) I remember when I was
applying for all my schools, I went to every single one
of the little orientations, but I chose Humber because
I didn’t have to choose between print or broadcast. I think it’s always hard to
kind of decide what you wanna be like right when you apply for your program ’cause so much changes. I remember my online class in second year, and our program coordinator saying, after this class, you all
are gonna be bloggers. It like sparked my interest so much that I just figured I’m
gonna intertwine my passion with beauty with everything
I’ve learned in school, put it all together, and
then I created my blog, Rebecca’s Beauty Boudoir. And ever since, I’ve just been
given so many opportunities. (pulsing instrumental music) I always knew I wanted to
intern at Flare magazine. It was a magazine I had
read for a long time. I reached out to the beauty editor, and I just asked her for her advice and how to apply for a beauty internship. I think showing that initiative
that I learned at Humber, and they encouraged me to do that, it was just like one step in the door. And the next thing you
know, I got an interview, I got the internship. (pulsing instrumental music) I think that anyone who’s
looking for a real taste of the real world, if you come to Humber, it’s a very hard news environment. It teaches you what is timely, what matters today, and I really like that we a nice lab where you’re able to collaborate
with the newspaper side and the online side. You’re also able to conduct interviews in a really professional environment with actual microphones. So, you are really in an
environment that you would be if you were working in a
newsroom in the real world. (pulsing instrumental music) No matter what I had
to do in this program, you know, whether if I was stressed about handing in an assignment or making a deadline, I’ve
always had the support of, not only the faculty, but my peers. And it’s been a fun ride,
and I’m gonna miss it. Thanks so much. You have yourself a wonderful day. – [Voiceover] You too, take care. – Bye.
– [Voiceover] Bye bye. (pulsing instrumental music)
