Finding Your Future Peers

My future peer would be Cheyenne Rodriguez, who is a strategist and copywriter at Mother NYC. Mother NYC is a Independent Creative Company, thats in multiple locations around the world. Cheyenne is my “peer” because we both come from similar backgrounds and she landed in a place that I hope to be in the near future. Cheyenne is a POC female New York native, and we both come from the same programming and similar connections/ networks. After she dropped out of school she worked on a project with the new museum and then soon after that she found a placement at Mother Agency after interning with them and then got hired with a permanent position.

Cheyenne is a good associate/friend of mind whom I admire her work ethic and how she speaks and conducts herself. Although she dropped out of college she is a very intelligent woman who is very self aware and knowledgeable of her history and where she comes from.

Small Tasks, Big Goals

Unfortunately, I’m not exactly too sure what I want my big goal to be. But I do have a couple ideas along the lines of which direction I would like to head. Ultimately, I know that I want to have my own business. I would want my business to provide a service/product of design and strategy. To be hired by others for a particular service/product.

My next small task to complete this goal would be to do extensive research on how this particular business is suppose to be ran. I need to research individuals as well and familiarize myself with their work and the different types of content thats out there.

For me to even be able to attempt this and see if this works, I need to understand the business of fashion, the business of graphic design, the business of advertising and consulting and know at what type of medium would I be consulting on.

Best and Worst

The top two worst classes that I encountered were a Mandarin class and a “Informal Logic” class. The worst experience was this ‘Informal Logic’ class because, the material of the course wasn’t what I at all expected and the class wasn’t at all engaging. It almost felt impossible to grasp the material or to even be interested in the course to try to be. The Mandarin course wasn’t “bad”, but it was hard due to my instructors teaching method with my preferred learning strategy. He taught on a more verbal level whereas I know that I learn best visually and seeing the translation from pin yin, to characters to what that is in English, and he mostly just wrote only characters which wasn’t helpful to me at all.

My best taught courses so far that I have completed, were my CT courses. I really enjoyed my UX/UI class and my motion graphics class using Adobe After Effects. Another thing that I liked about these classes, is that I enjoy becoming more familiar with the adobe suite.
