Derrick Toledo

derrick-bio-newI first came to GJ through advisement of a journalism professor. There was a final project due in Multimedia and Visual Communication which technically was my first major video production assignment. I choose to do my project on Native running. I feel like I put forward my best effort and left nothing on the table. Upon completion and presentation of the assignment, the instructor was proud of the work I did and made it clear to me. She made me realize how powerful my passion is and also instilled powerful journalism techniques in me. She was the one who connected me to GJ and the rest is yet to be written.
