This past weekend I attended a Christmas Party / Potluck at INSPIMIND. I completed a Video Production / Multimedia Internship with them this past summer. I drove all the way up from Glassboro to Paterson during finals week to bring my Guyanese Chow Mein dish. As expected, I had a total blast and I commend this organization because I identify with their mission and will continue to support the cause. To my surprise, both the Outreach & Retention Team, and the Programming & Research Team awarded me with Certificates of Appreciation. Happy Holidays!
I know this seems like Deja Vu. No, you aren’t seeing double. Yes, I scored a second internship. I was selected to work as a Photography and Videography intern with award-winning commercial photographer, Jill Lotenberg.
This opportunity is particularly exciting because I’ll be shadowing a female entrepreneur with an established base and carved niche. Personally, I started out in the freelance capacity, and admittedly, I wasn’t very familiar with pricing policies, cancellation policies, scheduling, building a client base etc. So this opportunity will allow me a hands-on intuitive experience where I’ll get to use my on Canon EOS DSLR. I’ll be strengthening my proficiency in CaptureOne and the Adobe Creative Suite.
I won’t have time to spend on the beach this summer, but I’m looking forward to drone shoots, yacht shoots and capturing footage of New York’s movers and shakers in real estate.

I am pleased to announce I accepted a summer internship with INSPIMIND in Paterson, NJ. In this position, my major duties include coordinating video production activities, editing footage, adding subtitles to videos, promoting on social media platforms, photography, planning & scheduling shoots, and collaborating with both the Production Team and Content Development Team.
Things kicked off to a great start last week with a video shoot at Henry P. Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford, NJ. We ended the evening with a team-building hike at Mills Reservation in Upper Montclair / Cedar Grove. One of the things that struck my interest with this organization is its ongoing commitment to the community. INSPIMIND aims to continue the cycle of higher education and foster leadership, particularly with young minorities. I’m thrilled to be able to document its activity through film and social media, while exploring SEO and developing an online visual strategy to promote INSPIMIND as it reaches out to colleges/universities, high schools, and middle schools.
Over the course of the Spring semester, I served as a Transfer Mentor and PROS (Peer Referral & Orientation Staff) at Rowan University. I am pleased to announce I was awarded for Outstanding Training Achievement. This has been a phenomenal experience and I cherish the moments where I can positively contribute to the campus community.
