DESTINATION STUDY USA (EPISODE 1- AN OVERVIEW)291
For two weeks, Love News reporter, Hipolito Novelo and videographer, Brian Castillo, were in the United States of America visiting several tertiary level education institutions. The US Embassy here in Belize chose this media house to partner with for President Barrack Obama’s “100,000 Strong in the Americas” initiative. The goal of the initiative is to increase the number of educational exchange between the USA, Latin and South America and the Caribbean Region. So Hipolito and Brian’s responsibility was to visit several different types of colleges and universities in the States and put together a documentary that would educate potential Belizean students how to apply, finance, socialize, study and prepare for these colleges and universities. The duo visited Atlanta, Georgia, Chicago, Illinois; Washington, DC; Nashville, Tennessee; and Murray, Kentucky. They got a firsthand experience at the U.S. Higher Education system and interviewed several Belizeans studying in the USA. The documentary is called Destination: Study USA and it will be aired in a series form over the course of coming weeks. It will be broadcast here on Love FM/Love TV and during The Morning Show every Wednesday starting today. The following episode takes an in-depth look at what the initiative is all about and what you can expect later on.
