"At my internship, I was fortunate enough to work on the ESPY show, an ESPN awards show that recognizes top athletes. I worked primarily on the talent side—I dealt with bookings, tickets, and travel for all of the athletes that attended the awards show. I was dealing with the sports world and made relationships with many people...ESPN worked very closely with Maggie Vision and our Talent Department often collaborated with ESPN talent teams. It turned out to be the highest rated ESPY show to date. Seeing hard work pay off on such a big stage is an amazing feeling!" —Brianna Cela ‘17, Associate Producer, Words + Pictures
