Former student Chental Song Bembry has been selected to receive the prestigious Early Risers award at the 2015 BET Honors.
We initially met Chental as an invited guest on a BETV segment hosted by our students when she was just 16 years old. She returned to attend our TV Studio Production workshop as a student herself, then later became a Media Intern helping other young people get started. She is now a broadcast journalism major at Hampton University Scripps School of Journalism and Communications.
Highlights from Chental's first guest interview
Chental is currently working on turning her books into an animated series, writing 90-minute holiday specials and several episodes for 11-minute TV segments.
We're excited to see her recognized on a national level for her achievements as an author, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker. She also happens to be a sincere, caring, intelligent, and amazingly talented young lady.
