Youdlyn Moreau ’13 a.k.a. “Lynda Starr” hosted a special MLK themed radio show live from the Scandling Center. Youdlyn interviewed students asking them what their thoughts were on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and what message they would give him were he alive today.

During this Winter Break, while students were off campus enoying their time off from classes, some students who remained on campus enjoyed partaking in several outtings in town. Trips included: dinner and movie at the IC, movie night out, dinner and ice skating at the recreation complex. Also, several students participated in internships as well as trips to Los Angeles for career in media exploration.
“Going to the LA Media Event was truly one of the best networking experiences of my life. I got to meet very successful alumni from the Music, Film and TV industries and it allowed me to have a clearer vision of my career path. I’ve obtained very insightful advice on choosing a field that suits my passion. Now I realize there’s many more opportunities out there within my interest in music – primarily songwriting, but I am hopeful for what awaits me after graduation. I’m truly grateful to have participated in this event!”- Youdlyn Moreau ’13
“The LA trip was an incredible experience, in my opinion one of the best programs at HWS. Meeting all the HWS alums and seeing how successful they all have become in the entertainment industry, gave me confidence and reinsurance that I too could be like them or even better. This trip completely changed my mind about my career goals and helped me with figuring out what I like and dislike in the entertainment industry.” – Chryssy Abdool ’13
