Rashad T. Goldsborough
Rashad T. Goldsborough's favorite quote, from the ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, is to first "have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve those ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end."
His primary goal is to use the mediums of television and film as platforms, to articulate arguments, which critique institutional dysfunction and comment on why it affects people's everyday lives. Through his University of Delaware degrees in Political Science, with a concentration in Global Studies and English, with a concentration in Film Studies, Rashad has acquired the skills to research institutional problems, examine the specific flaws creating those issues, and finally discuss his speculations about them through filmmaking and TV production.
Recently, Rashad was able to accomplish his objectives through his summer internship with the CNN Newsroom, where he worked with Mr. Wolf Blitzer and his television news production team in Atlanta, Georgia. While interning, he wrote segments for Mr. Blitzer's show, Wolf, and provided the writers and producers with in-depth research behind the scenes. He also had the opportunity to further understand what it takes to create content for film and television, with his internships for Mr. Spike Lee, Delaware 28, Nickelodeon Development, Comedy Central Production and Nickelodeon Programming.
Currently, Rashad is pursuing his Master's degree in Administration of Justice, with a concentration in Homeland Security, at Wilmington University, while interning for the HLN Talent Relations Department in New York City. He is very thankful to have earned his undergraduate education at UD. His political science degree gives him a unique perspective in the television and movie industry. It allows him to take mediums, which are traditionally seen as platforms for entertainment, and use them to encourage his audience to survey the effectiveness of the social structures impacting their world.
