Fifteen deserving teens from communities throughout the metro Atlanta area and surrounding counties were selected after each submitted a 250 word essay detailing why they should be including in the media bootcamp. The participants were carefully selected to engage in an intense program giving them a birdseye view of the variety of specialized careers available in the media industry. During the rigorous two-day camp the all participants were given in-depth tours and tutorials from news anchors, journalists, television producers and behind-the-scenes executives at major media companies.

"I am overwhelmed with pride by the group of bright and ambitious teens who joined us for this year's Rising Media Stars Bootcamp. To see how eager they were to soak up all the knowledge and information that was put before them in two action-packed days was very inspiring! It does my heart good to know that I am able to use my position within the media industry to help gifted young people," said Egypt Sherrod, HGTV's Property Virgins Host & V103 Atlanta on-air personality and founder of the Egypt Cares Family Foundation.

"Egypt's Rising Media Stars Bootcamp was created with the intention of positively influencing young people who have a serious interest in pursuing a career in the media arts. Egypt and I always want to use the professional relationships we've built over nearly 20 year apiece in radio, TV, publishing and digital media to pay it forward and give access to those who may not otherwise have a vehicle to pursue their dreams," added Amber Noble-Garland, CEO of I For Talent Management and Chairperson of the Egypt Cares Family Foundation.

The 1st Annual Rising Media Stars Boot Camp was made possible by the in kind donations of Harold’s Chicken of Edgewood Avenue and Panera Bread. For More Information on Egypt Cares Family Foundation, please visit: www.EgyptCares.org and Twitter: @EgyptCares. For more information on Egypt Sherrod, please visit: please visit www.EgyptSherrod.com, www.EgyptSaidSo.com, www.facebook.com/EgyptSherrod, and Twitter: @EgyptSaidSo.
