In addition, they visited the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library to see its renowned collections, went on studio tours, and had meet and greets with filmmakers at Oscar Week events. Each winner also received a camera with which to document their experience and the behind-the-scenes stories will be posted on Kemp shared his experience with the Express-Times while waiting to catch his flight home from Los Angeles.

Wiley, a media and communication and film studies double major, has been modeling since the age of 15, and is competing to become “The Face” of a national advertising campaign and to win a yearlong modeling contract. She took time out of her spring break at home in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, to speak with The Morning Call.
