After just a week at ENTITY Academy's Entertainment Collective, I have learned more about the industry than I had in three years at Harvard. I now feel better equipped to pursue a career in entertainment as I have more clarity surrounding the various trajectories into the industry, how to conduct script coverage, and the fundamentals of networking. Access to mentors such as Patricia Arquette (actress and activist) and Jessica Poter (TV writer), and a tour of the renowned United Talent Agency have been invaluable to my growth as an aspiring film director and screenwriter.

Because of ENTITY Academy, I gained a great deal of confidence and I finally have a sense of direction in my career. I left ENTITY inspired, especially after talking to ENTITY Founder and CEO, Jennifer Schwab. I was in awe of her story. Seeing an Indian woman in her position made me realize that I, one day, want to be just like her.
