PitchFest is a pitch competition, held in partnership with Final Draft, for Emerson alumni in the LA area and currently enrolled ELA students to test the power of their projects.
“Everyone’s grateful that you’re there,” said Torres, a native of Ponce, Puerto Rico. “I feel welcome and part of the team.”
Torres fulfills many responsibilities on Conan O’Brien’s show, and one of her favorites is acting as a stand-in and being present during rehearsals.
“As interns, we’re their target audience,” she said. “They always want us…to see what’s funny and what works.”
Torres plans to stay in Los Angeles after graduation.
