MSG Classroom Spring 2018: Malik
This spring semester, eight Garden of Dreams teens, including Malik, participated in Garden of Dreams and MSG Networks “MSG Classroom” program. Malik, a Garden of Dreams 2018 Inspire Scholarship recipient, shares about his experience learning the television industry from MSG Networks professionals:
Being part of MSG Classroom was truly a great experience. MSG Classroom was a program that not only opened my horizons but also helped me find myself. This program showed me that there are more possibilities than just being in front of the camera. It showed me the numerous jobs that are involved behind the scenes. It was MSG Classroom that—along with other programs— helped me break my shell of comfort. If it were my freshman year self taking part in the program, I would not have actively seized the opportunity to interview Knicks legend Larry Johnson and star as the segment host of our show, “Above the Hurdles.” However, it was because of this incredible experience that I was able to partake in the things I would never have dreamt of doing. In addition, it was also MSG Classroom that gave me the opportunity to network and learn from so many MSG Networks business executives and partners. MSG Classroom was an enjoyable, productive, and beneficial program that I feel fortunate to have experienced.
