Hello there!! Welcome to my ePortfolio. My name is Rosswill Lyons and I am currently a junior at Ithaca College. I am pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in TV-R with an International Communications concentration and also a minor in Spanish.
Throughout my college career, I have endeavored into a diverse range of extracurricular activities, simultaneously earning some coveted awards and recognitions. Internships that I have participated and successfully completed have included a position in the office of Assemblywoman Naomi Rivera, the ASAP Leadership Internship and tenure in the New York State Model Senate program. Moreover, I interned at Bronx Net, where I assisted in the production of several broadcasting features in a professional studio environment. As my commitment to a better environment, I participated in Power Shift and the Sierra Student Coalition in trips to the Nation’s capital to meet with EPA officials. These were all accomplished while pursuing my Associate’s Degree at BCC, where I was a member of the honors society Phi Theta Kappa. I was continuously included in the Dean’s list and received the Communication Award upon graduation. I was also endowed with the ASAP Leadership Award, the NYC Model Senate award and the NYDRMUN award.
I have various goals defined which I hope to fully achieve, some long term and some within shorter parameters. I hope to receive high marks in all my current courses, simultaneously gaining as much knowledge and expertise for each class as I possibly could. I also hope to engage in many extra-curricular activities that interest me. The personal aspects of these goals consist of me growing as a person and being better able to network and work with new people. For the long term, I hope to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree and continue on to a reputable graduate program.
Also, to reach my career goal of being a Spanish Language Broadcaster, I will need to make sure to take part in different internships with news stations, and learn as much about the professional environment of the field as I can. I aspire to work at an organization that engages in TV program production, preferably a newscast. I have a passion for this environment and I find the way a newscast studio functions fascinating.
