Sharareh Drury is an award-winning multimedia journalist in Los Angeles.
She currently is a Production Assistant, researching and reporting for E! News. She also is a host on Spreecast, covering a variety of trending news.
Sharareh has proven herself to be a versatile journalist by taking on various positions and reporting on various subjects including international/national news, entertainment, health, local communities, and social issues.
Sharareh graduated from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism in 2011 with a B.A. in Broadcast and Digital journalism, and an emphasis on American popular culture and the music industry.
In 2007, she won a Student Television Award for Excellence from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for her documentary on survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Personally, Sharareh is a huge music and television buff and when not absorbed in TV, she loves anything to do with the outdoors (surfing, camping, cross-country running etc.). She is also a major mix of culture, mainly Iranian-Irish, and to travel and learn about the world around her.
What are the top three skills journalism students should learn in college?:
Internet and Social Media - everything is online or getting there soon and the web provides endless possibilities for research and information. Social media is the way of the future for human relationships and connections, utilize it! Also, make sure you yourself have an online presence - a portfolio, YouTube Channel, Twitter. You need to show you're not just online but getting involved and participating within it too.
Confidence - Its a cheesy skill to put down perhaps but being confident and sure of yourself will help you through this incredibly tough, ever-changing, and grueling industry. Some days will be fantastic and others will make you question what the heck you're doing -- but with confidence, you'll get through it and find the reward of being a journalist in a modern world.
