When I was selected by BerkleeICE to represent Berklee in the SXSW Hackathon and Incubator, I was honored, but also unsure of what to expect from SXSW. I had heard of the hype surrounding SXSW, but I was not expecting to meet such an overwhelming creative energy flowing through Austin. For a week and a half, the city becomes a breeding ground for ideas as bright minds both young and old examine the current state of the music, film, and tech industries, and try to pave a better future for the way we experience entertainment and the world around us.

Embracing Change in a Changing World

Paul Nnaoji and Michelle Golden are students from the global entertainment and music business graduate program at Berklee’s Valencia campus.

Almost ten months ago, over 150 students from 35 different countries, came together to attend various Master’s programs at Berklee College of Music, Valencia campus. We didn’t know what to expect — some of us were fresh out of college, while others had a few years of experience under our belts. But we came to Valencia, Spain — from various parts of the world — to explore our passion within the music industry. As the spring semester comes to a close, we sit here and write filled with more knowledge, experience, and guidance as to what comes next. In the spirit of this year’s TEDxBerkleeValencia event, which took place on April 25, 2015 at L’Oceanogràfic themed Changing Currents, the idea of change is one that every student at Berklee is rather familiar with, and one that we all faced head on when we came to Spain in August.

Since last year, I have been working on my own company with a friend currently studying at the “Institut Français de la Mode”, a fashion school. We met in high school, but really got to know each during university. She was in Paris while I was travelling around, already trying to connect to the music and fashion sphere on our own through different experiences. Both of us are passionate about music, fashion and art; each time we met each other we imagined our dream company – the one we have just launched: AM AGENCY.
