 "I absolutely recommend anyone who is interested to apply to go to SXSW. It is a wonderful networking and connection-building experience. You get to speak with professionals who you usually would not be able to talk with. I also made some incredible friends, and you get to meet many people who are interested in the same things as you. It is also very helpful if you are interested in the music industry."
