UTA’s Society of Professional Journalists hosted a lecture with a very special guest: Emmy award-winning journalist Rebecca Aguilar. The former Fox-KDFW reporter has gone on to become a freelance reporter, blogger, consultant and public speaker. She shared her 30 years of broadcast experience with over 70 students (from both UTA and SMU) in UTA’s Fine Arts building. Aguilar offered advice on the best sites to use for social media, the importance in networking and getting mentors, and having passion and purpose.
