Sharleen applied to the CCP program to dive deeper into the industry of live-event production. She has a strong passion for the performing arts because she's seen how it brings people of all backgrounds together. She aspires to work behind the scenes to give the best experience for artists and event-goers.
Alongside her internship, she has also been at school working with a student org, Akbayan SJSU, to help direct and manage the 34th Annual Pilipino Cultural Night. Her role in this project entailed teaching traditional Pilipino cultural dances and training the cast to put on a successful live production. Sharleen talks about how her CCP experience impacts her contribution to the show...
"I'm learning to integrate my creative side with the logistical aspects of putting on a successful performance. I'm thankful to have outlets to exchange knowledge of the events industry and at the same time, honor my culture. I plan to take these teachings further down the line in my career. I know that I'm making a difference in my community through challenging the norm and stepping out of my comfort zone -- all of which are themes that both PCN and CCP stand for."
