I loved my time at SiriusXM. I interned in the Music Programming Department, primarily programming for Diplo’s Revolution and Insomniac Radio – two EDM stations. While I was here, I worked alongside Rawle Becerril and I have to say, if I had a position with anyone else, I may not have had as much fun. Rawle is a DJ, Producer, “Chub Rub” Label Rep, and a house music maven. He made sure the internship never felt like a job, and I always enjoyed coming to work.
Interning at SiriusXM, I learned a lot of what I expected to learn. I learned the processes of programming and editing audio – in that regard, they hit the mark. But most of what I learned was unexpected. In the short time I was here, I discovered I had a taste for EDM and I wanted to start DJing and producing for myself. I have been a musician all my life, but I noticed I started attending more DJ sets and appreciating certain artists more – artists I’d heard about but never cared to explore. This was what I enjoyed most about the experience. It lead me to a refreshing self-discovery.
I am glad I interned with SiriusXM. It is the unexpected outcomes from experiences like these that shape who we are. I know I would not be the same person without it.
