Sarah says her Griffith degree was pivotal in making her lifelong dream of living and working in New York a reality. 'Without having that degree…I wouldn’t be in New York at all,' she said. 'Having that foundational education in journalism has been crucial to being where I am now, and I think having the amazing professors that I had at Griffith had a huge impact,' she said. Sarah is a public affairs specialist for New York University. 'There’s always really interesting projects happening, so I’m always connecting with professors and finding a way to get them media exposure.' Sarah agrees that because the media industry is evolving so quickly, interdisciplinary study is the way forward, as you need to be able to draw on other communication skills. She encourages other students to never lose sight of their dreams or why they started studying in the first place. 'Jump on every opportunity, even when things feel scary. Trust your instincts' she said.
