Before starting this internship I was told to sign up to the Rock app. This was how the Strategic Engagement Department got organized. Here a space was created where we can communicate to other members. This is also where we receive our tasks and can share our files with other members of the team. I like how effective and efficient it is.

Recently finished previous assignments. I did not mind doing two tasks at the same time since creating multiple projects is something I am familiar with. It also helped that when I felt stuck on one post, I was able to focus on the other. This helped me be able to look at my work with new eyes and adjust where needed. Now I am working on the third post and a meeting where I will meet the rest of the department is being scheduled.

I went to a virtual event created by the Cooper-Hewitt. I was very excited since I have been to this museum before and loved their exhibitions. Even Though I have never participated in any of their events. so this was a new experience for me even if it is virtually. I really looking forward to it since it was Chip Houghton from the design studio Imaginary Forces speaking about the studio and their works. I was amazed to see their reels with the different studios that they worked with including MARVEL. I also enjoyed the conversation about bringing more diverse designers and creatives into IF. I like how it was the discussed the importance of reaching out to those that go to community colleges and public universities. This made me feel like I and many talented designers that I’ve seen at City tech and other CUNY colleges have a chance in someday working at studios like IF. It feels like the opportunities are opening up.

Unfortunately the internship with the wedding photographer did not work out. I was stressed since I still needed a internship, luckily I received a message for an interview for an internship at Unity for Equality. For the past week I have started working on projects. I felt relieved and focused on working on my tasks.

I went to the MAIP event and it was very interesting. I was also great to hear aluminis experiences. While the program seems challenging its also seems like a great oppurtunity. I have also sent my GCSF sheet for the mentoring oppurtunity.

With my updated resume and portfolio, I have applied to many more internships. One has messaged me for an interview. I am nervous but also looking forward to it.  I have been researching and preparing the answers I would respond to the possible questions.
