After I had graduated high school, I was on the hunt for internships. I applied for a few, and ended up with 757 Media, an agency that creates advertising material and marketing support for their clients.

When they took on another intern, I was given the task of holding meetings with her every other week to talk about projects and share ideas.
For the Clarion, I do page layout design as well as photography. Every other Friday and Monday I come in to the Clarion, and work on the arts and opinion section, spending hours working on the layout, finding pictures, and sometimes making illustrative graphics.

Not only do I volunteer with DAIS, I also volunteered at "Design Like Mad" 2016. Design Like Mad is a nonprofit that hosts 12 hour design marathons for local nonprofits. We arrived at the Madison Public Library at 9am, and left at 9pm. They ask graphic designers to volunteer their time to make posters, logos, and websites for various nonprofits in only 12 hours. The teams of graphic designers met with their nonprofits to discuss with representatives from the nonprofits. My team, Chris, Maggie, and myself met with Jill, a representative from Operation Fresh Start. Jill 's nonprofit serves at-risk youth helping them decide on their career paths, teaching them new skills, and helping them with their resumes. Chris created infographics, Maggie created a mailer, and I designed three posters for Operation Fresh Start to put up to advertise their campaign.

- The world is at a point where people have to question if they feel safe, and if they do, why they feel safe. The answers will vary, but more than likely, the United States, not the United Nations, will be the answer. The Security Council was made to keep peace among the world, and the concept of it was a great idea in theory. The world needs protection from the horrors of genocide, the death from terrorists, and the corruption of governments that can create many issues. However, in recent years the United States has led the charge for the war on terror, while the U.N.... [tags: peace, world safety, un, security council]

Teachers of younger adolescents are important because they demand respect from their students and help to guide their students through many times some traumatic years.... [tags: Choral Director]
