My name is Elijah Castra and I am 18 years old attending city tech for communication design, hoping to develop skills a graphic designer or gamer designer in my time being here. I went to a high school in Brooklyn called S.T.A.R Early College H.S. Some of my hobbies include playing video games (such as call of duty, 2k, fortnite, rocket league, gta etc…), I also upload YouTube videos of me playing games(sometimes), I like to draw, write my own stories, and chill with my friends. I am not the most social person so I guess I’m “anti-social” it’s just that things in my past just make me have issues when it comes to meeting new people. I am very interested to see how my time here at city tech will be and gonna try to make the most of what I do here

Introducing ourselves

Although we introduced ourselves in class briefly, and we’ll introduce ourselves more formally in Project #2, please write introduce yourself here in a comment as a way to help us get to know each other better. Aim to write 250-300 words. This is your chance to say all the things you didn’t get to say in class, or to say again all the things you crafted and said brilliantly. You might add what your academic interests are, what the highlight of  your high school experience was, what you hope to find at City Tech, etc.

If you have successfully created an OpenLab account, log in before you comment so the system can recognize you. Otherwise, fill in the required information and get started!

Check back again and reply to at least 3 of your classmates, asking questions or letting them know about shared interests.
