Nikole Davtyan traveled to Los Angeles to visit Gersh, Funny or Die, & The Creative Artists Agency. She met Jaleel White who played Steve Urkel on Family Matters and even randomly bumped into Dan Shere at The Beverly Hills Hotel! While there, Nikole learned about how LA’s film industry operates. “Agencies are grad school for film students” and “Networking is your key to success” are her two big takeaways from the trip, Nikole comments, "Coming from a low-income background, people like me often miss out on unique experiences because they can’t afford to be a part of them. With that said, I’m super grateful for the Edward Stasheff award and the FTVM department - none of this would have been possible without you - so THANK YOU!"
