After a federal judge in New York ruled that unpaid interns on the movie “Black Swan” should have been paid at least minimum wage, people have started taking a hard look at unpaid internships. For a lot of degrees at Texas State University, an internship of some kind is required and most students spend summers all around the nation as interns. Texas State electronic media senior Isamar Terrazas is one of those students. This summer, she traveled to Rio Grande Valley to work at KGBT Action 4 News, a CBS affiliate. As her internship winds down, the Record talked to her about her experiences.
1. Where are you from?
I am from McAllen, deep in South Texas. I have been raised here since I was seven and before that I was living in Delaware. I also spend a lot of time in Tamaulipas, Mexico since that is where my family lives.
