Bio

My name is Magi Hossameldin and I am a full-time student at New York City of Technology and a full-time barista at Juice Generation.

My life changed when I decided what I planned on doing for the rest of my life; choosing my major. The day I decided to fly all the way from Egypt to New York City to study Communication Design. Which  is uncommon for a Middle Eastern Female to travel to study and live abroad without any family whatsoever. Although I went to a high school that is way far from being equipped with smart devices and design programs. It was hard that I selectively chose to leave my family and beloved ones and move to NYC seeking out a new, better and a more promising future for myself in a city that goes the same speed as I go. I can’t imagine until now that I got to take a step -this life changing- in my life.

Moving out of the comfort zone does not happen at ease. It needs determination. I still have not accomplished my dream but I am proud for paving the ground towards success and being halfway to achieving my dreams and self-actualization. Adapting with diverse cultures is not easily attainable, yet; it serves our good purposes if it is wisely availed.

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.

All projects will include thumbnail sketches, discussion and research. A weekly scrapbook will be kept. Media used are paint, paper, ink, pencil, ruler, knife, glue, and digital software for expressing graphic ideas.
