Bio

Hi, my name is Lastenia Worrell and I am a Communication Design major. I have always “doodled” on my work notes at a young age and came to the conclusion that I should take up design as a college major. My high school only had one design class called “Set Design”, which only consisted of designing models of how sets for plays and live TV shows would look, so coming to City Tech was a big jump for me. For my communication design major I am focusing on the graphic design module. I am really into magazine layouts, identity branding, print ads and campaigns.

On a more personal level, I live in Brooklyn. I am 23 years old and my hobbies other than design is dancing, listening to music, sleeping when I can, baking and entertaining my son. I am a new mom and I can honestly say I have never experienced something so beautiful. I know it sounds cheesy, but for me there is nothing like motherhood. As for this semester I just want to say hello and welcome myself to my peers!

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.

ENG 2000 Perspectives in LIterature Fall 2015

ENG 2000 Perspectives in LIterature Fall 2015

This course will introduce you to reading and writing across genres. The course will focus on readings that explore concepts of identity in America and the ways in which race, class, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity intersect to shape one’s experience, sense of self and understanding of the world. Through an analysis of contemporary American literary texts, and situating them in their historical, political and social contexts, we will examine the relationship between literary narratives and larger political and social movements. To do so, we will supplement our analysis of the literary texts with theoretical inquiry and historical research to develop a fuller understanding of the social and cultural significance of each work.
