FROM THE NAVIGATOR We very proudly present to you the fourth edition of The Navigator, a magazine for students by students. The Navigator dresses up in pink in appreciation to The X Factor Club, who with hard work and dedication honored all the ladies on campus with various events during the month of March, (Women’s Month). The Student Community Association, The Navigator and the Academic Success Team congratulate the Ladies from The X Factor for the great work during the month of March. We would like to restate the main purpose of creating a magazine for students by students. A commonly used word that we hear is, “networking” and The Navigator aims to be the bridge that connects all students from different degrees and cultures. We work closely with all clubs to ensure the quality and credibility of our articles. You deserve the opportunity to be part of a community that embraces your unique talents, hobbies, and interests. The Navigator will guide you into choosing the perfect club, based on those individual needs. Here, you will find insights from past as well as upcoming events. The future of The Navigator is entirely up to you! We encourage student participation, and if you are interested in submitting articles, photos, or artwork, please contact navigator. We look forward to a successful year for The Navigator, and we welcome any comments and suggestions you may have that will improve the magazine in the future. • THE NAVIGATOR • 1 • THE NAVIGATOR • 2

“Every dream begins with a desire” -YK KIM


artial artist and director Y.K. Kim made his

groundbreaking public appearance as a guest speaker at our school this past March. The director spoke to students about his journey to success even after going through many failures. His career as a martial artist quickly turned into a career as a writer, producer and actor on his first film ever, “The Miami Connection” (1987). Although this Korean native had a rough

time in the U.S. trying to promote his dreams without knowing any English and stumbling across different financial situations, it did not make Kim give up one bit! Y.K. Kim has also been a part of many inspirational books and motivational speeches. His set of CD’s and DVD’s, “The New American Dream”, is a collection of insights on how to have a healthy, wealthy and successful life. Entrepreneur and founder of the modern martial arts, Y.K. Kim announced to Full Sail students a possible remake of “The Miami Connection”. • THE NAVIGATOR • 3


Future Filmmakers: Film Festival


he Entertainment Networking Society presented the first Future Filmmakers Film Festival, planned to be held every month. This event offers the opportunity for the future filmmakers of Full Sail University to display their Films to the general student body and to gain exposure. The audience will vote for the best film and that filmmaker will receive recognition for their achievement. It also doubles as a social mixer; students can come and network with other students outside of their class or degree program. Zulailime M.
