I certainly had a lot to thank for this Thanksgiving! Last week, I learned that I will be part of the first legal internship program for the WNBPA for the spring semester 2023. I also discovered that my essay titled “Making Revolution Irresistible: Protecting Black Art” won first place in this year`s BESLA Law School scholarship writing competition. I was born and raised in New Orleans and went to Howard for my studies, so black art has always been a big part of my life. I am grateful and honoured to attend a law school that encourages me to pursue my passions. The intersection of entertainment and law is a very untraditional way, and UM has provided me with the capabilities and resources to navigate it. I look forward to continuing my legal studies at such an extraordinary institution. Definitely just the beginning, so back to dream hunting! #Blackgirlsdolaw #womeninsports #entertainmentindustry #entertainmentlaw #musiclaw #sportslaw What would you say to students considering an internship at WME? I am so excited to announce that I have accepted a summer internship at WME in its Beverly Hills office as a Business Intern! I am incredibly excited to gain first-hand experience in such an incredible company. Being a black woman interested in a career at the intersection of entertainment, sports, and law can be very intimidating. But God always gives you things at the perfect time. I know I want to be at the table in this industry, and this is the perfect place to teach me the skills I know I need to succeed in this field. I work hard to achieve all my dreams. And now I`m one step closer to being your next favorite entertainment and sports advocate! Co-founder of Black Lives Matter Manchester | J.D.

Originally from St. Louis, Missouri in the United States, Gen lived in Muscat for a year before finally moving to Dubai to complete his studies.

Not only will you put your acquired key skills to the test, but you`ll also gain invaluable insights from our award-winning engineering teams. After graduating in April 2020, Gen will use his time at WME to gain valuable “real-world” experience at a leading engineering company, hoping to find his most comfortable position in the project pipeline.

At WME, I want to learn the basics of the structural design process – from concept to construction to completion,” Geneviève said in a conversation with Chief Marketing Officer Bradly Holdsworth. With a strong academic background and a love of reading, Gen earned his first degree in English literature. Today, she focuses exclusively on civil engineering, as she studies at the American University of Dubai.
