I was invited last night to be a presenter at the the Columbia Collective Awards " A Chronicle of Creating Change. It was an award show. Since I am a Columbia College Chicago alumni , and am working in the photography/film world; the students of the Events: Festivals & Concerts Production course invited me to be a presenter. I was so touched and honored that of course I couldn't say no to that. The event was planner and produced by the students and it was a lot of fun. My girlfriends Antoinette and Tiffany accompanied me. We walked the red carpet, had our pictures taken and sat in VIP with swag bags. It was a lot of fun. My part was so simple. I read from a small script they gave me and that was that.
Being at Columbia again made me realize just how great that school was. The environment at Columbia is just so free and creative. You can be whoever and do whatever you want and that's a great feeling.
The production for being the students first time was amazing. They did a great job and I was so excited to have been apart of the event!
