Even though this was stressful and at times overwhelming, I am glad that I’ve finally finished my internship with 120+ hours!!! WOOHOO!!! It was such a wonderful and very fun experience since this will help me actually understand how to hunt and get a job in the future. Everyone in the internship was very friendly and helpful to me for any kind of help that I needed and because of them, I managed to make some pretty neat designs for GivingForward’s Sweepsforacause campaign. It was a fun rodeo, but it has now come to an end. However, I will still keep in contact with the people of GivingForward and give them a helping hand if I need to. Also, this internship experience made me realize that you have to take what you can get and not wait until the last minute to find or get a job. It only just makes finding a job a very stressful and overwhelming experience especially also when dealing with classes on the side, but you live and you learn from those experiences.

Just getting out of Thanksgiving break and going back to work. I was at least able to get some rest and relaxation, but now it is time to bring this internship to an end ^^. I’m 111 hours and 53 minutes in and I am happy that I am very close to finishing.

Quick update on how the internship is going for me so far.

While it has been a pretty stressful couple of months with dealing with classes and this job, It has been pretty good for the most part. I’m making sure to keep up and check in with my supervisor for this internship and I’m actually pretty close to finishing up soon. I think I only need just 6-5 days left before I officially have 120 hours in total. I’m at the home stretch!

Quick update: I have finally gotten a job! Finally! I honestly didn’t think I was gonna find a job. So many weeks and months waiting for a reply from the other jobs was stressful, but not anymore! So far, the job GivingForward is going well. Everyone greeted me and made me feel really welcome to the team. Hopefully, everything goes well. Wish me luck!

I’m back again to post my job hunting update. It has been a very stressful process so far for me. So far, I haven’t heard one word about the jobs that I submitted applications for. Hopefully, they will reply soon and I can get started on working and putting hours in.

Back again to record my progress on finding a job. So far, I have been hired to do a job at my sister’s job as an intern to assist kids. It’s been a while since I’ve done something like this, but I will do my best! I’m now at the stage where I have to fill out some papers for this internship in order to start working. Hopefully, all this gets settled, so I can get started.

So far, I have been searching around for jobs using the app Handshake and other methods by asking friends and teachers. Luckily, with the help of my friends, professors, and sister, I managed to apply for at least two jobs that interested me.

I right now am currently waiting and preparing myself for this job interview on working in a school that my sister works in. Meanwhile, I still haven’t heard back from the other internship so far, but hopefully, I also get a chance to learn more about what this internship does so I can get a clearer understanding. Fingers crossed!


Hello to everyone that comes to my page, my name is Amara Worrell and I am majoring in Communication Design. The reason why I’m in this major is because of my love for (Illustration) Character Designing, Game Designing, Animation, and Cartooning. I grew up watching cartoons and anime as a kid so, when I saw those things on the screen, I was blown away by it. I knew from that point on that I wanted to be an artist when I grow up. To pursue in my future art career, my best friend thought it would be best for me to go into a high school that studied in art, so I went to the High School of Art and Design, majoring in Cartooning. Within those years, it took me a while to find and develop my art style that I can call my own. Although, during my senior year of high school I didn’t know what college to go to since majoring in Illustration or Communication Design was kind of rare but, when I saw the New York City College of Technology and how they had a major in Communication Design, I was honestly happy and had my mind set to go there. They even had specific types of electives that fits my strong suit which was another plus for me. However, I couldn’t lie to myself and say that I was a bit intimidated and scared coming to this new environment. As a child, I was and still am a very quiet and shy type of person, but at the same time, I wanted to meet and connect with people. Even though I knew this will be a bit challenging in my eye, I saw CityTech as a ticket to doing something that I would love, even if it means doing a couple of things that are way out of my comfort zone. But, I do think it will be worth it in the end when I get the opportunity to do it.
