Hi, My Name is Michael

Hi, I’m Michael. I love art, however I’m not such a good illustrator. My favorite color is green and my hobbies are listening to Music, playing Video Games and watching lots of YouTube videos. I also like to watch anime and my favorite anime is Naruto. I’m really easy to talk to and I like making new friends so if you see me don’t be afraid to say hello.

Hey, I’m Jeremy!

My name is Jeremy Dueñas. I am a Communications Design major with a focus on Advertising – I plan on pursuing my BFA instead of the BT track. I was born and raised in Staten Island where I currently live with my mother, father, sister, grandfather and dog, Bobby.

I’m a self-described adventurer and communications enthusiast. I have several years of experience working with social media content creation and spent the last year serving as the National Social Media Team Lead for a non-profit organization with 150,000+ followers across all major platforms. I can at times be quiet, but if you get me going I can talk for hours about all my experiences.

I traveled to South Africa with my internship at JP Morgan Chase during high school and fell in love with the country, so two years later I did a study abroad program in Cape Town. Following my time in South Africa last winter, I took the spring semester off because I was accepted to the Disney College Program. I spent 8 months working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and found a company that I would love to grow with as I begin to develop my professional skills in this field.

Hi, My name is Anna

I’m an animal lover and I have two cats who are siblings. My hobby is painting. I’m mostly self taught. I was born in Brazil but NYC is my home. The feathers in the name drawing (above) represent Carnival. It’s an annual holiday around Easter that some Brazilians celebrate. I used to play soccer, basketball and volleyball. Now I only watch them but I miss playing sports. Sadly I have become accustomed to fast food, which is represented by the hot dog. However I am changing my eating habits. It’s something I’ve been working on since 2018.
