"I think the Television Academy Foundation Internship Program is one of the most valuable, validating experiences I've had in recent years. It allows seasoned industry professionals to support your strengths, while also showing you how to alter or make the most of your weaknesses. I have so much to be thankful for from both the Television Academy, as well as CoSA."
