Wow, what an incredible journey. I don’t know where to begin. The incredible friends, the amazing adventures, the uphill battles, the incredible videos, the learning, the experiences, Triton Television has truly made me who I am today. Without it, I would not have realized my true passion: film. When I founded Triton Television and it’s intern program, I wanted to create a community of dynamic filmmakers, who could grow together while perfecting their craft. A community that would solve problems together. At it’s inception, I could barely dream of how large, influential, diverse, and incredible Triton Television would become. Very few know of the tireless sacrifices that went into TTV’s creation and what it has taken to get it to where it is today. I must stress how lucky we all are that something like this exists at UCSD.
Sadly, as my graduation quickly approaches, I must begin my next journey. In my hasty preparation for this upcoming adventure these last two quarters, I neglected that which I held so dear. However, this process revealed something to me that sets me at ease. TTV is truly on its feet and running. Fast. Throughout it’s creation I was worried: what would happen when I left (for many of the newer members who barely know me this may sound silly)? But, as founder of this organization, it brings me great joy to see that its ideals, rules, and success are upheld in my absence and even when I challenge them myself (sorry for giving you EP’s and SM’s such a hard time!). Hopefully my mischief hasn’t caused too much trouble!
To those who supported me, inspired me, and made TTV your home even before we had rhyme or reason I thank you. To everyone, my greatest wish and hope is that Triton Television will affect you, inspire you, help you become an incredible filmmaker, storyteller, and person. I hope I made a positive impact on your life.
You will always be in my heart,
