I would consider my supervisor, Julio Li, as a role model because he is really a nice supervisor and a friend. He is the department head of Graphic and Web Design. Being a supervisor, he did a great job. He taught me so much in graphic design field and jobs. I remember from the first day of my internship, he already knew, I’m nervous and afraid of the work that he gave. He was always trying to calm me down and helped me to do better designs. He wanted me to experience so much design work, so he pushed me so hard. He forced me to watch YouTube videos and asked him if I needed. He taught me, if things that I don’t know how to do it, I have to ask it immediately, so the problem will be fix. He also taught me time sensitive. He always told me that we have no time to think, so we can’t overthink. He always said, “Don’t think of it, just do it!” He wanted me to do things fast without any thinking. He wanted me to experience working with simple design. One important lecture that he taught me is how to deal with co-workers. Communication is very important. I learn that the first thing to build up a relationship with whatever people is we have to start the conversation; we have to talk to them, so the relationship can start. As long as a good relationship is build up; co-workers understand each other’s work. Job can be done. He is such a talent enough supervisor.
Being a friend, we are from the same college, New York City College of Technology. He told me a lot about CityTech. He taught me how should I do when I’m off from classes. He taught me what should I do during my free time or the times that I’m in the train. He taught me that I should use my time wisely, so I don’t waste it, and I can have so much time to learn more things in order to improve my design skills. He taught me that if we do things in our personal life wisely, that can help us so much in our jobs. He also brought me out for foods; he wanted me to know more things and to explore the world, so I can grow up. He is such a great friend.
I am very thankful to my supervisor as a friend for taking care of me so much in the last few weeks! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs help in graphic or web design.
