Introducing Precollege Intern: Martha

Precollege Digital Photographer and Website Assistant Intern

Hey Hey Hey!!

My name is Martha and I am 17 years old and I live in the Bronx. When some people hear someone is from the Bronx they usually think ghetto, rough and possibly lazy. None of those things are me… not even close. I have a very colorful personality (when you get to know me). Every time I meet someone new I hear about how mean I look and how quiet I am. Well that’s only cause no one really takes the time to know people these days. I love making new friends and finding new places to go. I love to explore Manhattan, when I get the chance to of course. If I am not exploring, I am off somewhere working or possibly tripping over thin air (not everyone can do that you know).

Okay so you’re obviously reading this and this is obviously a blog. Well, yeah duhh! But, it’s not just any small ridiculous blog that’s filled with tons of teen angst. NO! It’s FIT’s blog. Oh yeah, how many people get to say that (not including the people that are already on here)? Well because I am such a gentleman I will answer that for you; not many people.

I love photography! Ever since I was 7 years old I have been infatuated with the idea of not having to draw my own picture and listen to people ramble on about how I don’t color in the lines. Now of course that isn’t the only reason I love photography – oh, no – there are many other reasons. I’ll give you one more and I will try to make it as cheesy sounding as possible… People say a picture is worth a thousand words. I don’t believe in that. I believe that a picture is worth a lifetime of memories and each one leads to a beautiful beginning. There, now didn’t I tell you it was going to be cheesy?

I haven’t taken any classes at FIT nor have I signed up for any. Why you ask? Well, I lead a very busy lifestyle and never really have the time to take classes anywhere. School even, I only have two classes because I intern at this amazing college (FIT) and also because well I work other places as well. Currently I have a portfolio that is in the process of being made. When I am here, I feel like this is the perfect place for me.

Finally this is coming to an end. I hope I didn’t blind you with my craziness and maybe, just maybe you guys got a little clue about who I am and which end of the line I come from. Again, FIT is an amazing place to be and it adds on to how amazing NYC is. I am super excited to be writing on this blog and sharing everything I know with you guys. Maybe I will even become a permanent blogger for FIT. Just kidding, just kidding. Maybe you guys won’t have to hear from me again. Or will you?

With loads of invisible love,
Martha
