Before addressing the graduates, she told us about how the birth of her idea to beam television programming around the world via satellites came to her during her stay at MSU, where she earned a master’s degree.
She also talks about her mentors, her goal of raising capital for women entrepreneurs , and what advice she has today for MSU women seeking careers in communications.
