A New Kind of Storyteller
Most creative leaders in this world got to where they are today because they are problem-solvers: they find a need and fill it. In fact, it was this determined mindset that led Rosie O'Beirne and Anna Lloyd to establish the program of their dreams: the UAB Digital Media Fellows.
"We decided early on that media fellows needed to be the cream of the crop in digital storytelling on campus," says Lloyd. "And we believe that if you're that good at what you do, you deserve to be paid."
Media Fellows work 20 hours a week at $12 an hour. This wage was set to show students that they have just as much to offer as professionals do. And every dollar made by student projects with external clients goes right back into the program.
