They read Vazquez

Citlali Vazquez grew up playing with her stuffed animals, pretending they were on a TV show.

Now, she’s working in the film and television industry through a prestigious internship program managed by the Television Academy Foundation (EMMYS).

“I’ve been interested in film and television since I was a kid, and I guess I never gave up on it,” Vazquez said.

Vazquez, a 2018 Cathedral City High graduate, was one of just 40 students chosen from across the country for the summer 2022 Television Academy Foundation internship program. She is currently enrolled at Cal State University, Fullerton.

She grew up watching cartoons, and now she’s taking animation to another level.

Her work focuses on virtual and augmented reality for visual effects at Scanline VFX, a global visual effects and animation studio.
