My Valuable Experience As a Trainee (An Intern's Experience at Powcast)
During my stint with Powcast, I have been given the chance to interview different well known personalities in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Boxing and Football like Gegard Mousasi and Mr. Mike Ochosa and also I personally met basketball and volleyball players Enes Kanter, Dikembe Mutombo, Elfrid Payton, Mika Reyes, Jaja Santiago and etc.
My first event was the Ferlenski International Boxing. I was so excited at that time because it was my first time to watch boxing live. I met the Games and Amusement (GAB) Chairman Sir. Baham Mitra in the GAB press con, watched a football game between UST and Hongkong football team. I also served as a videographer at the Color Manila launching event, the Blacklight Tour. Covering events gave you the awesome privilege to witness everything media is and everything they do.
It was the most unforgettable experience. It's also such an eye opener to the career I chose. I realize that being a media person has big responsibilities, but to be in that moment gives me a different feeling... shy and nervous? Yes I am, but despite that, the feeling of being in the field, the feeling of appreciation for those media practitioners matter the most.
My experience made me realize that being a journalist, you should be prepared for everything your job wants you to be. It's hard? Yeah, nothing is easy, just do the best in everything. The satisfaction and enjoyment plus the wonderful people I've met during my entire internship are really one of a kind.
The reality starts when you're ready to be the one you've worked for years.
