Introducing ETV Carolina's newest intern

Winthrop Student and SCETV Intern Jendaya

My name is Jendaya and I am interning at ETV Carolinas this semester as a production intern. I am a Mass Communication major at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C. My goal is to become a Multimedia Journalist and work in production at a news station. After finishing week two of my internship, I have spent the week working on blogs and on the Made Here digital series, which gives people an insight into small businesses in the Carolinas.

Last week I was able to write a blog on upcoming social distancing approved events in York County. This blog allows people in the York County area to know about events in Rock Hill or Fort Mill that they can safely attend during COVID-19. Additionally, I was able to secure an interview with Anne Close Springs Greenway, a business in Fort Mill (S.C), that hosts Winter Yoga at the Dairy Barn on Tuesdays, for a segment of Made Here.

I spent the week scheduling a day to film and creating interview questions, in addition to finding a new blog idea for the following week. Tuesday’s interview with the Yoga Instructors at the Dairy Barn was the first time I filmed with a Canon DSLR camera. It was very confusing at first because we use different cameras at Winthrop. After asking a few questions about how to work the camera, I figured it out. Overall, the interview was great, but I realized that my questions need to focus more on the purpose and background of the business.
