Updated: Jan 13, 2023

My name's Kahlil Collazo and I'm a Film BA major at the University of Central Florida. I came to UCF on whim and chance, after the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria forced me from my home in Puerto Rico. I left behind everything I knew in hope of something better.

Not long after starting at UCF, I stumbled upon an intern opportunity with Intern Pursuit on The Intern Whisperer radio show.

My time here has reminded me that I've much to learn and improve about myself. I've worked as producer/co-host intern of a live Internet-radio and Facebook show. While not within my specific field, it has permitted me access to a platform with some technical and creative contribution.

This internship exposed me to a wide array of individuals, be it employer guests or previous interns, and the opportunity to work with other interns from varying fields of study. I received insight on the inner workings of many businesses and industries and made some amazing connections.

Time management remains as one of my areas of growth. Throughout my semester here I've received professional advice on ways to improve in this area and even other personal struggles. I look forward to carrying these experiences wherever the future leads me.
