My name is Elizabeth Barineau and I’m a sophomore at USC majoring in Journalism and double minoring in Theatre and Spanish. I’ve called Houston home my entire life growing up in Memorial and now Los Angeles is home too. I arrived as a Theatre major having been in about every play and musical put on in school. I realized that I lost passion for telling stories of the past like Shakespeare and what I really wanted was to tell stories of today. Broadcast Journalism gives me the opportunity to be in front of the camera with an audience under lights but report on current events and speak for the voiceless. Interning at The Buzz this summer, I know I’ll learn how to write under a deadline and brainstorm ideas in a group setting. I’m excited to be part of the publishing process and understand the time and effort it takes to make a magazine. These skills are crucial in this fast-paced industry with fresh stories flooding in constantly.
