Interest in the arts (music, particularly), interested in writing and English in general. I consider myself a good writer, and my interest in the English arts has always been prevalent in my time at school. I am part of the high school band, playing rhythm guitar and piano, and I've had some experience volunteering at local libraries. I've had a lot of experience with intellectual learning and with reading and writing, and I am very interested in developing skills that may differ from this idea somewhat. I have an interest in developing physical skills and experiencing some more manual work.
Generally, I am interested in working with my hands. Working at a shop or studio where I can learn some skills of the trade would help me develop more as a person. A music internship intrigues me also, such as something involving sound engineering. Overall, some work in a studio or shop would really suit my interests.
I'm looking primarily for a place where I can learn a skill and develop that skill by working with an authority figure or mentor. A supportive workplace environment for me means a place where I am able to learn from observation and hands-on work in a shop or studio, and where I can feel accomplished in the skill I acquire.
Main Interests: Environmental Sustainability, Renewable Energy, Recycling
Types of fields: Environmental friendly organizations, renewable energy companies.
Workplace environment: A small group of people working on ways to spread the word about sustainable energy. I hope to learn a lot more about the issues of unsafe energy sources and ways in which they effect our environment.
Reasoning: I would like to pursue these specific fields because I have always been interested in the environment and from observing the dramatic change in the environment in just my lifetime, I feel it necessary to take this global issue and express to people that this is their issue too. My top choice college focuses entirely on enviormental studies and my hope with this internship is that it displays to the college that I have a keen interest in environmental studies.
Psychology is what I plan on pursuing in college and has always been my main focus. As a result I'm interested in advertising and public relations in general. I also find science worthwhile in any field.
Early on debate experiences give me exceptional presentation and public speaking skills. My participation in the Learning Afar Costa Rica scholarship gave me understanding of environmentalism. Currently working in organizing my school's weekly assembly.
Fields of interest: Psychology and public relations. Generally the sciences are of interest.
Interests: I would love to be in a field where I can see the business side of the music industry. I’m also interested in food and the aspect and environment in a restaurant. I also love working with children and helping them learn and grow into young adults they can be. I have experiences with working with children, working in offices taking orders.
I've played High School flag football, and in my spare time I like to write song lyrics.
Type of Fields: Radio Stations, Restaurants, Music corporations and After School Programs
Workplace Environment: I like both fast-paced and very calm environments, as long as the people are friendly and helpful.
I would love to intern at anything that has to do with fashion. I love fashion so much.
I would also would like to work in a restaurant or a kitchen. I really think it would benefit me if I learned how to cook or see how the food is prepared.
I also would like to work with kids, I love kids so much and I want to have a positive impact in their lives.
I like to skate and shop.
I worked at a restaurant called The Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain in Carrol Gardens in Brooklyn. I was a dishwasher for 11 months. I also was a table busser and a waitress and an errand girl.
I've baby sat since I was 11.
I've also dog walked since I was 11.
My greatest strengths would have to be my listening skills and contributing ideas. I'm also a social person, and I love putting a smile on people's faces.
I hope to gain knowledge that I can carry with me for the rest of my life.
I care about animals (cats are the best), social media (Twitter and Instagram) and various cultures, specifically those of the Asian region. I grew up on Japanese animation and am currently into the Korean music scene. I can work in groups, complete long-term projects, and properly use Microsoft Office, Excel, and PowerPoint. I can type at least sixty words a minute. Once I receive a task I work hard to get it done and done well. My ultimate life goal is to try and visit as many countries as I can. Sometimes, I think I want to grow up and become an astronaut.
I would prefer inside work. Jobs that require me to be outside are something I covet much less. I would love working in a museum or a similar place that requires research and/or the organizing or setting up of things.
Somewhere somewhat quiet, a place where individuals can work independently/in partners. I'd like to work in a place that decorates for the holidays because it gives off a friendly atmosphere. I hope to not only offer my own skills but to acquire new ones.
I love to exercise and learn more about the earth and its holistic health benefits to our mind and body. Dance, animals, and cooking are all my passions. I partake in cooking lessons from my father weekly, grew up in the restaurant business, work as a hostess at West Side A.O.C restaurant once a week, and work at Chipotle 3-4 times a week. I work well under pressure and enjoy the hands-on busy work. I work well both independently and with groups, but prefer groups.
I would absolutely love to work with animals. I have a dog at home whom I take care of and grew up for the first 12.5 years of my life with the most amazing cat. I am kind-hearted and know how to compromise and create positive atmosphere in a workplace.
I hope to gain more knowledge on animals, the shelter business. I come from Montenegro, a small country where I go to every summer, they unfortunately have a lot of strays, when I go back this summer I want to know what to do help.
I am interested in psychology and learning about how people work. I am passionate about this because I have a innate desire to understand things and I find people, and how people think, fascinating. I am involved in my school's debate team, archery team, and community service club. I work at a summer camp called Sangamon, Life Guarding, and supervising Activates of Daily Living. These work experience made me want to understand more about people. My greatest strengths are my emotional intelligence, public speaking, and mediation skills.
I am interested in marketing and advertising because of the links they have to psychology and sociology. I am also interested in cooking because I love food and it is a skill that would help improve my life in the future. I would like to have a position where I get to learn why and how the job operates. I would like to be in a position where I accumulate experiences that could help me later in life.
I would like a work place environment that is very hands on, a place where ideas are allowed to be discussed and explored. I want to learn more about myself as a worker and figure out a better idea of what I want to do in the future.
My main interests include photography, sports (soccer, swimming, running) and issues surrounding women's rights. I have been taking darkroom photography for the past four years at the International Center of Photography and have participated in their one year intensive program last year. I am now taking a photo book making class. I have been a competitive swimmer for most of my life until my junior year of high school, and for my senior year I was on the school's soccer team. I also run girls leadership in school and have been working as a camp counselor for my summer and ski camps. As a student, I am hardworking and I have always been an extremely strong student. I like to push and challenge myself constantly.
I am interested in working in some field related to photography and preferably darkroom photography. I have experience in the color lab as well as the black and white lab. I am also interested in working with children because I enjoy running around with kids at camp and having fun. Also I have worked with students in Nepal this past winter and I have taught them how to tell stores through photography. Other interests include working at a non profit for women's rights because I did a project in the 10th grade on women's health and this has always been of interest to me since.
I would like to work in a place where I can interact with inspiring people that will help me grow as a person and I would really like to gain insight into a professional but interesting world.
Devina Jade Reyes
My main interests include skin care, cosmetology, and working with children, preferably middle school.
I enjoy writing and arts and crafts, and also I do my fair share of photography when I have the time. I have been a babysitter for multiple children at a time, for a few hours during the day and also over night. I've gone on two humanitarian trips, one of them was affiliated with No Barriers Youth during the summer of 2015 to Costa Rica and the other with Christ Tabernacle to Peru. My greatest strengths include working with children and people.
For my internship I have been looking forward to experience something different than i am used to. I have recently found a new interest in cosmetology and skin care and hope to pursue it. I would love to be able to do some hands-on work.
My main interests include art, history, travel and photography. For the past four years have pursued my interest in photography through classes at the International Center for Photography. I am currently enrolled in the year long intensive imagemakers program there. Last summer I explored the medium of film/video at the Rhode Island School of Design's 6 week pre-college program. At RISD I also studied design and drawing foundations, and art history.
I would say that my greatest strengths are my creativity, my adaptability, and my capacity to work well in groups.
I am very interested in working in the field of art. I think I would gain a lot from working in a museum, in a gallery, or with a publication or artist. I believe that this experience would help me further explore my passion and curiosity for art. I would love to be able to learn with other people who share this passion.
My ideal workplace environment is small, tight knit community of creative, open and communicative people.
Main Interests: I enjoy doing things that involve other people. This means I am very sociable and able to talk to people I have never met.
Activities: I am an avid sports fan and am also very good with a lot of electronics.
Experience: I have done community service at a nursing home in the Bronx have also frequently babysat around my neighborhood.
Positions of interest: I would enjoy interacting with other human beings as one of my best qualities is that I can relate easily to others, so I would like to do something that has to do with psychology. I would like in some capacity to help other human beings.
Optimal Workplace Environment: I would preferably like to have to come out more confident in terms of my interaction skills. Besides that I would feel good with myself to say I have in some way helped another human being along the way.
My main interests for an internship are education, child development, and science. Education has been a main interest of mine for the past five years. I plan on studying education and child development during my time in college. Some past experience that I have in this field are babysitting, being a tour guide for I.C.E., and being a docent for New York City Aquarium education department. This experience particularly babysitting has given me a real passion for teaching others and young children. Some skills that I have are public speaking, customer service, child care, and American Sign Language.
The work fields I am interested in are elementary schools or pre-schools/day cares. At one of these work sights I would like to be able to assist a teacher during class time and outside of class with school curriculum. I would like to be able to interact and help out with students and gain an understanding of how a classroom is run.
My main interests are history, geography, digital and film photography, and filmmaking. I've taken 3 film classes, 1 at SVA, and one at the NY Film Academy. I also took a class in film photography at the International Center for Photography (ICP) and I am a member of the ICE Youth Media Club. Last year I went with my classmates on a 3 week photography trip to Nepal. I am strong in writing and art.
I would love an internship relating to any area of my interests. Something photography or film related would be ideal. Otherwise anything relating to art or carpentry would be amazing.These are also things I've found I'm pretty good at and would like any opportunity to pursue them. Any kind of studio or workshop would be great. I would rather not work in an office unless it is photography or film related.
I would love to find an internship related to fishing, as I fish every weekend, and it is not only a sport, but a way of life for me. It gives me peace and tranquility when I am having a stressful week, and it always brings me joy. I also run track, as used to run for a track team, although I don't run for this team anymore, I never lost my speed.
My greatest strength is my will. No matter what sport I am playing or what I am doing, I never give up. This summer in Alaska I didn't know the terrain very well, and I really wanted to catch a salmon. Day after day, and night after night I fished my heart out, in the ice cold Kenai River. Each day I didn't catch, but also I never gave up. Finally I caught a salmon, as my efforts finally paid off. And the trip did not go unfulfilled. I ate that salmon, and was never happier, as it gave me a sensibility of surviving off the land.
Kameron Mikhal Torres
My main interest include art, filming, writing stories, and skating. In my free time I paint, draw in my sketch book, and sometimes write stories. I took a six week Saturday art class at the Art Directors Club and on some Friday nights I volunteer at a church to film the services.Personally my main strength is my creativity and how I think in ways which others would not. I enjoy being around people because they make me stronger.
Looking for experience in art fields such as an artist's studio, or anything involving different types of art, like animation or fine art. Another field would be film such as a film apprentice making a small film and even creating the story by writing it. I enjoy doing a hands on type of work, getting "dirty". I'm always willing to do whatever I need to do to get the job done.
I would realy enjoy being in a comfortable environment and not in an office space. I really don't like being at a desk, but if it was a personal work space that involved my hands on work that would be great. I enjoy being around very friendly people as I myself am a very friendly person and you'll never worry about me starting trouble because I tend to avoid conflict and if you like to talk I would be happy to talk as well.
My main interests usually revolve around some type of art, writing, or history. Although I'm not the most artistically gifted person (I usually stick to stick figures) I enjoy looking at art and critiquing it. I also enjoy creative writing, which is something I've been able to pursue with my school's literary magazine. Last year after doing a large research project, I realized I enjoyed history.
After interning at the Museum of Art and Design I have found out that I want to pursue public programming. Making art more accessible and finding ways to get people into museums/ galleries is something that I'm interested in. I would also like to intern in a place with a focus on history and design public programs there. I want to make things a little more equal in the world and the best way to do that is to spread opportunity.
I'd be interested in working in an office that has set deadlines and people who are willing to help me. Ideally through this internship I'd gain more and more responsibility as it went on. Hopefully by the end of this internship I'll be able to focus in on what I want to study in college and will have gained a lot more knowledge in whatever field I end up working in.
Interests: I like Anthropology and have taken an introduction course at Baruch College. I am also very passionate about science research and spent my most recent summer vacation participating in psychology research lab as a paid internship at City College of New York. I also have interest in working with animals. I've spent many years of my life dancing so that is another activity I would be interested doing as an internship.
As a student and worker I am hardworking and innovative. I will finding alternative solutions to problems and complete my work on time. I am also a people person and much of my experience as a babysitter has shaped the patient person I am today.
I am interested in science related fields or anything to do with social services or social justice. After going to Costa Rica last summer to do volunteer work and volunteering in a soup kitchen with my mom at St Johns church, I know volunteer work is something that I am passionate about. Lastly I would like any position that involves actively contributing and not just sitting in a seat all day or just getting coffee.
I think I would do best in a work environment that is social. I often feel better in situations when I'm surrounded by friendly people and am constantly learning new things whether they are big or small. What I hope to get out of this experience is a better sense of myself and what I may or may not like to do in the future.
I am interested in the fields of computer sciences and electrical engineering. Activities I’ve done at school related to these fields are computer programming and media productions in our weekly student-produced all-school assembly (Town Meeting). In computer programming I learned about coding and for multiple projects I was required to create a playable computer game for students to play, such as Pacman, Leap Frog, and Snake.
My greatest strengths are my compassion for others, my willingness to learn, my focus, and the ability to adapt to any situation.
At my internship I hope to learn how to repair computers and other electronics, how to code, and/or how to inspect appliances and electrical circuits.
I am passionate about several different things including music, animals, and children. Throughout my life I have always been engaged in music related activities, from singing in a choir to making music in the songwriting elective at my school. I also love caring for and playing with animals, as well as children. I enjoy helping other and participating in community service. One of my strengths is that I am a caring person and I also pay close attention to detail. I have experience with interning at a company named RealMatch. This company uses job matching technology to connect employers and qualified job seekers.
Since I am interested in music, animals, and children, I would be happy working in any of these fields. I am interested in any position that will eventually allow me to express my creativity.
The perfect workplace environment for me is one that is relaxed yet focused. I would like to be surrounded by other passionate people who will push me to challenge myself and step out of my comfort zone.
