Fun Fact
I had no experience in Adobe Premiere but with a little guidance from my supervisor I managed to teach myself enough to create several ten-minute long videos promoting our weekly articles. I also ended up teaching my supervisor a few tricks in Adobe Premiere.
Passion
Learning and discovering new things have always been a great motivator for me. It's something that truly excites me. Every internship I've had I feel like I've learned something new and I think that adds more interest and creativity to the positions I hold currently and in the future.
