"[Anna] Ferster, a communication/media and film major from Marlton, interned with Aspiring Scholars and Professionals at Princeton University, a selective program created to support students from underrepresented communities and backgrounds.
She worked on a documentary investigation called The Trenton Project, editing transcripts of video and audio interviews. The documentary investigates the April 1968 shooting of Harlan Joseph, a young Black college student, by Trenton police.
Ferster said the experience broadened her perspective on career paths.
'Before this, I only looked at strictly media production-related careers,” she said. “But now I see I can venture into more research-inclined careers as well.'"
