The World Needs

Eileen O’Neill said she can trace her enormous success to the “four R’s”—relationships, responsibility, risk taking and working “really, really hard.” O’Neill, the brains behind such hit shows as “19 Kids and Counting” and “The Little Couple,” truly paid her dues to reach the position of Global Group President of Discovery Studios. She started at Discovery Communications as an unpaid intern while earning a graduate degree in popular culture from the University and was hired by DCI’s networks operation department immediately upon graduation.

In a world attached to devices, it’s still human contact and relationships such as those developed at BGSU that are truly a key part of success.
