On September 16, 2014 Monica Kauffman-Pearson, the Oprah of Georgia, graced Columbus with her presence. Here as the Inaugural speaking in the Communication Department’s Speaker Series, Mrs. Pearson spent the day in the CSU Communication Department doing varies activities. I had the opportunity to meet her and learn first hand about the business and how to as successful, if not more, as she was during her time. Mrs. Pearson had a master class where she talked about how she broke into the business and some key information on behind the scene management issues and rules. I also had the opportunity to help film and do audio on her master class as well as her interview with Ashton, which was also a great learning experience. Speaking with Mrs. Pearson one on one was a great experience, she was so down to earth and she kept it completely honest on how to have a successful life outside of all the media. I can’t wait to apply the information I learned from her throughout the rest of my internship.
