Penultimate | Endowment Intern Rebecca

By Rebecca Dymock


This week has been another busy one. As next week is my 10th and final week here at ETV, I have been working to make sure I get as many projects done as I can. I have been editing away and hope to get a few more stories out before I leave. I cannot believe how many videos I have been able to create in just 10 weeks! I feel so much more comfortable completing a project from start to finish because of all of the practice I have had this summer. On Thursday, I even went on my very first unsupervised shoot!

The past few days at ETV were full of new experiences. At the end of last week, I drove to Charleston with Aimee Crouch, Lynn Cornfoot, and Titus Davis to interview Michael Arad, architect of the World Trade Center memorial. Arad created a design plan for a memorial dedicated to the nine members of the Mother Emanuel AME church who were killed by white supremacist Dylann Roof in 2015. Prior to the interview, I researched Arad and drafted some questions to ask, some of which Aimee used!

A Bittersweet Goodbye | Endowment Intern Raven

Raven and Libby

As I wrap up my time as an ETV Endowment intern, I can easily say that I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. Within the past two years, I’ve had two different experiences with SCETV. Both have been amazing. This time around, I was able to develop a different set of skills, which I know will further my future greatly. I hope one day to work as a PR professional and knowing how to create digital content will give me a competitive edge that other students my age will not have.

Most people are aware of the many efforts in the education sector over the past several years to increase and improve our children’s exposure to science, technology, engineering, and math: known as STEM so that eventually, maybe more high school graduates might consider one of those career fields where demand remains high.  Our next guest has decided to turn his STEM experience into an entrepreneurial venture to further this educational trend.
