My name is Alyssa Garza, I am a senior at the University of Houston studying Media Production. This summer I was selected as an International Radio and Television Society (IRTS) Fellow and received the awesome opportunity to be fully-funded to travel to and living in the heart of NYC all while interning at TED headquarters! This has truly been a dream come true! I get to come to work every day and meet great people and do what I love! Through my fellowship, I have also had the amazing opportunity to visit a range of media and production companies here in NYC, such as Spotify, HBO, and NBC!
