ALEX REDDING – HENNEPIN TECHNICAL COLLEGE:
Alex hasn’t back down on a challenge learning new media production techniques, even when learning itself can sometimes be challenging. As a young adult on the autism spectrum, Alex says one of the biggest challenges for is knowing how to navigate and understand social interactions.

Alex says he typically has a lot of anxiety about having to work with a large team. But says he’s been able to overcome his challenges and see them as strengths. Alex says he will “hyperfocus” and be detail oriented. He will notice details which create insightful analysis critical to understanding key aspects of an entire production.

Alex says his attention to detail has also allowed him to operate highly technical production equipment, and software to improve all of his media production value.
