Where Are They Now: Michael Lebowitz

Manager, Original Series at 21 Laps
Los Angeles, CA

What was your position on your program board?
Failed Student Director Candidate and Speakers Director

How did your position help prepare you for your career?
Oh it’s been amazingly helpful. Taught me to be able to interface with professionals, learn how to be in stressful situations, and allow myself to do things I’m uncomfortable with. Not to mention I learned how to work with an incredibly collaborative team so I was able to believe in the people I worked with and be empowered by others as well.

What has been your biggest accomplishment or proudest achievement so far?
Graduating early to pursue a career in the industry I’ve dreamt about being in since I can remember. Also being 10 feet away from Beyoncé once but that was less of an achievement and more of a spiritual moment.

What is one piece of advice you would like to share with college students currently working on their program board?
Put on some Lizzo, realize this is an experience you’re never going to get again, soak up everything you can while you’re there because “Truth Hurts,” you’re gonna be graduating soon! Bye!!

Favorite TV show to binge?
Schitt’s Creek, Sex Education, Parks and Rec, You, Stranger Things, The Punisher, okay that’s a good taste but there’s so many more. Do you want a full list?
