My name is Jessica Pareja, born and raised in New York City. I am 17 years old and speak two languages, English and Spanish both languages have allowed identify who I am. I am currently a freshman at City Tech and majoring in Communication Design. However, I’m still not sure if I would like to continue majoring in it. I come from a high school who’s major program is Television and Film. In there I was lucky to learn how to use cameras, and edit in softwares. Starting there we had to film and edit our own mini projects. During my time in high school I was allowed to find myself and I decided to learn my things. One thing that I enjoy the most is photography which allow me to capture millions of expression within one moment. Right now, I might not have a dream to what I want to do but I do have a hope that soon I will know. What comes to mind is do I want to follow photography or choose another path or staying in the same path I have chosen? As long as I can recall photography was the only thing I really enjoy. However, as a human being I have many passion and many wonders that I would like the world to see.
My consideration for my avatar is an image of a camera, believing that a camera well expresses me. I believe that the image of a camera helps people understand what I enjoy to do the most. If defining the word camera it is usually referred as a device for recording or capturing an image. The camera represents me in different ways first by showing of that I can hold and capture many ideas however, I only choose the best ideas to be exposed. A camera only flashes when its holder decides to shot when coming across an object. A camera symbolizes to me as of right now that I will be introduced to many ideas but once I decide what I want to do as my career I will only focus on that. Therefore, I believe with the help of my fellow classmates I can continue to grow as a person.
Other people might have different perspectives when they come across my avatar they might just view it as me just enjoying photography. They might not even know why a camera is posted as my profile picture because it doesn’t define me or simple because it has nothing to do with my major. One might suggest that it’s my hobby but they won’t think of it as being my career. City Tech might not offer photography as a major, not many colleges have that however I want people to understand that the camera is just defining how I’ll be able to learn and put away many important moments that will be presented in my life. I really enjoy photography it is something I’m very passionate on and hold dear on.
Overall my profile and avatar show images and texts that I can define on. The images presented allow people to show what I’m able to do even if I still don’t have my mind set up. A camera can be picked up and it shows even though I can’t do a wonderful art piece I will continue to try. No matter what happens I will continue to learn and fight until I get it right. If I decide to continue majoring or change majors, I know I will have the skills to present. Writing this biography will later help me encourage myself, once I come across something difficult. I hope in four years later I am able graduate and be proud for the person I became.
