Bio

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.

My Courses

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.
