Hello Media Connections:
I have a student who is graduating in December and needs some advice. She wants to work in media and use it as a tool to educate society about different social topics.
She has a passion for fighting gender stereotypes, particularly in sports.
Her capstone included doing research about the negative effects stereotypes can have on male athletes.
She wants to work in the non-profit arena using documentary film as her vehicle.
You are all experts in this world, where should she start? What types of jobs or internships should she pursue?
She is smart and passionate and would make a wonderful advocate for any social cause, I am just trying to steer her in some good directions.
Here are some suggestions I have already given:
*Start blogging about your cause
*Create a website and social media around your cause
*Connect with any and all people who work in your cause
*Create your own short films, put them on your website and youtube and use social media to connect people to them
Any suggestions would be helpful.
