Jackie Perez is a freshman here at CSULB and she loves to be here! She went to East LA Cantwell High school, which was a private school and she said it was very ratchet. As a CSULB major, she has chosen film screenwriting. With this major, most of her time is consumed by creating scripts, cutting edits, and finishing the final product. Even though it is very time consuming, she says she wouldn’t want t pursue a career in anything else. As she continues to pursue her degree, she hopes to capture a job in the film industry that requires directing and editing skill.
