NEW YORK -- WABC-TV is excited to host Be Reel with Your Dreams.


Be Reel with Your Dreams is an event that aims to inspire select high school students to follow their dreams and pursue a career in media and entertainment.

Founded by Eyewitness News anchor Sade Baderinwa, Be Reel exposes students to the industry through a hands-on learning experience with top professionals that includes panel sessions and interactive workshops. Previous years' events have covered topics such as acting, journalism, production, hairstyling, and photography.

This year's event took place at a NYDOE facility in Lower Manhattan on Saturday, May 20, 2023.

Invited high school students picked up some helpful hints in their quest to become the next generation of storytellers.

There were actors, makeup artists, writers - as well as some familiar faces from Channel 7.

In addition to the panel, there were different workshops for the students.
