Studying Communication has allowed me to explore contemporary topics that are important to me through a nuanced and multi-disciplinary lens. Beyond the analytical, I have also gained practical skills that are instrumental in my job today.
AUR put me on the path to a career I never dreamed I'd be able to aspire to. Now I edit feature films...
