Who am I?
Hey! I’m Nicole Hellman, a freshman this year at Missouri State University.
I came to MSU from Bentonville, Arkansas to get my degree in digital film and television production and pursue my dream of becoming a videographer. I spent my senior year of high school in a professional studies program for video production and decided I wanted to turn it into a career.
I’m still not positive where exactly I want to take my degree once I graduate yet, but am eager to find that out over my next few years here at Missouri State.
While film is my biggest passion, music is right up there next to it. Sadly, no matter how hard I try, I am not musically inclined whatsoever, but spend a huge chunk of my time (and money… oops) going to concerts and seeing the bands that I love.
I saw my all-time favorite band, Hippo Campus, four times in 2019 and hope to beat that record this year in 2020. If you don’t find me at a concert, you can probably find me watching any Christopher Nolan movie (Interstellar is my personal favorite), bumpin’ around town in my Kia Soul, or spending time with my friends and family.
My time at Missouri State
I’m not going to lie to you. My first semester here at Missouri State was quite the adjustment, but for that I am very grateful. There is nowhere else I would have rather spent such a crucial time in my life.
My first semester included a lot of self-discovery and challenging myself. Throwing myself into a new city where I didn’t know anybody was difficult, but it allowed me to strengthen my self-confidence and really figure out who I am as an individual. Over just one semester, I have met some of my favorite people ever and have made some life-long friendships.
I am so beyond excited to be a social media intern for Missouri State this semester and cannot wait to take the beautiful, welcoming campus I see and share it with others. While my time here so far has been short, my love for MSU is so big and getting to share it in a creative, interactive way is a dream come true!
