“Always follow your dreams and never underestimate yourself. Get out of your comfort zone; you never know how many opportunities can open up. Go out there and make it happen!”
Rosales shared this and many other valuable tips and suggestions to the journalism students. Overall, this occasion was a fantastic learning opportunity and a great introduction to the vast fields of communication and journalism. It was a pleasure meeting with her!
