I recently had the pleasure of working at the 2012 South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) here in Miami! I was a press and media associate thanks to my school, Florida International University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Read on for my reflection of the event!
I had always wanted to participate at a South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) ever since I’d heard of the exciting demonstrations and chefs that attended this event. When I found out the FIU School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) would be hiring students this year to help with the festival, I was ecstatic to sign up and participate in this year’s festivities.
I worked as a press and media associate for two events: “Flavors of Flay with Bobby Flay” and “Trucks on The Beach, the Official Festival Closing Party hosted by Andrew Zimmern.” Being that I am a foodie and I always have the Food Network channel on, I instantly recognized these celebrity chefs and couldn’t wait to work these events.
