Last year found Jessica Carrillo ’09 living the daydreams of a legion of teenage girls. Not only did she meet Twilight star Robert Pattinson, she spoke with him at length about his latest film. It’s all part of the job for Carrillo, 27, who hosts the Los Angeles-based Telemundo entertainment show Acceso Total. “I’m a big fan of his, so I was really nervous,” she says. “It impressed me that he is a true gentleman. He even blushed when I told him how handsome he was.” Carrillo also has interviewed Sofia Vergara, Pink, Jim Carrey, and numerous other celebrities. It’s a far cry from the ambitious alumna’s beginnings as a weather reporter in Las Vegas. In just a few years, her hard work and determination led her to Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of America. Carrillo sees a national entertainment news show in her future, and given her strong desire to succeed, it’s likely only a matter of time. “I’m the kind of person who never gets stopped by anything, and I’m always willing to learn new things. This is only the beginning of the bright future I see for myself, and I’m going to work hard to get it.”
