Transcript g a m 'e in C nicaJ ^panic Media Associate Though the name of the organization is Hispanic Media Association (HMA), this was a unique organization open to anyone interested in media. The main purpose of HMA was to unite all students who had an interest in the field and help them achieve their career goals through internships and networking. Members had a chance to receive a scholarship and meet and greet with members of the Houston Association of Hispanic Media Professionals (HAHMP), amongst other things. Vice President of HMA and senior media productions major, Lisa Marie Meza, said, "HMA gives me many networking opportunities. Plus, through HMA I can build connections with HAHMP, which really helps me get my foot in the door in terms of my future. Without HMA, I wouldn't know where to get started on my path in the field of media." HMA had about thirty active members. Most of them were print journalism, broadcast journalism, and photojournalism majors. But by filling out an application form and paying a membership fee of only $20, anyone had the option to join; even that $20 members could pay by simply selling raffle tickets. This year members toured Channel 2, met Bill Balleza, toured the popular radio station Hot 97.1 and spoke with Bo Corona, and mingled with other organizations in several mixers. The organization also did a special tribute for September 11th. Throughout the year, several influential people came and spoke to the members, including Dominique Sachsa and University of Houston Alumni. Plus the organization received its own office in Campus activities. "I was very excited that Dominique Sachse agreed to speak at our very first HMA meeting of the year. I had worked with her at Channel 2 when I interned there, and she was more than happy to help me out by being our guest speaker. She was very influential on a lot of the members and I still hear about it to this day," said HMA president and senior broadcast journalism major Marisa Lopez. - Sadaf Farooqui Houston media's future HMA officers pose for a group shot with Dominique Sachse.
