Bio: Jovon

My name is Jovon Gilliam and I attend New Explorations into Science Technology and math (NEST+m) high school. I am one that like quite a few things, but one of my keen interests is the different kinds of technology that are in constant motion. Two things that really interest me are roller coasters and trains, primarily because they are two fast moving objects on rails. The career that I desire is a little out of the ordinary; I want to be a roller coaster designer. Another you should know about me is that I love to eat, I will eat almost anything except eggs, I do not know why either. I am a very athletic person considering I been on quite a few teams in my lifetime, the sports I play include: football, cross country, basketball, indoor track, outdoor track, and almost any sport that includes running. I always like to try new things, you will always seem me say something like “I will try it”, unless of course the thing I try is absurd and disgusting, and then I will consider not trying. I love to travel even though I do not go out of country often, but I do love to go out of state. I am one who is very playful and friendly, everywhere I go I attempt to get to know people, for example, when I started working with Youth Media Makers NYC, everybody was a stranger to me, and nobody wanted to talk. However, by the end of the day, I was one of the first people everybody talked to, just ask Casey, Georgiana, Ayumu, or Benjamin. I love the summertime, I always say, “anything you do in the winter, you could do in the summer, but you cannot do everything in the summer in the winter. Personally I love to get money and thus I have three jobs: The Brooklyn Children’s Museum, at my school NEST+m, and now at The New School. I like giving back to my community and thus I have quite a few community service hours, and I like giving back to people in general.

Bio: Amanda

Hola. My name is Amanda. How did I end up in this program that I am in now? Good question. I go to a high school called Academy for Young Writers. One day my counselor said that a teacher needed about two to three students who were interested in art and technology for a internship. In my head I’m like “Yes all about this!” Which moved on to Eyebeam and then the Journalism field, if that’s what it’s called. And now I’m typing a Bio. Things to know would probably be my passion for art. Or anything that’s art related for that matter. I am 100% devoted to doing what I have to do to make it in the art industry. Being that free time is on my hands a lot I mostly read or watch movies. Some people would say I am dead in a way which is weird but I have a tone that is not too enthusiastic but it’s there… Way deep, and that I’m funny and out going but I don’t really see the out going as much as I see the shy. I would have to say that this year I have been out of my comfort zone simply because I applied to a lot of activities that I wouldn’t normally. There you have it though. My name is Amanda. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

My name is Fang er, but everyone calls me fanny instead. I like learning, talking, reading, and watching about politics. I’m born in People’s Republic of China and moved to the United States when i was seven years old. I will someday be moving back to China. I am a very emotional person and I love to cry about the little things. At first when I came to the People’s production, I wasn’t planning to join and didn’t want to join, but when I enter eyebeam and was told to sit down and complete an assignment gave by merisa, I actually enjoyed myself and I came back weeks after that. Though there were times that I wanted to quit because I didn’t understand what I’m suppose to do, i went through with it. I’m the type of person to only continue with something if I like it, if I didn’t like it it’s very hard for me to continue on. After the internship I didn’t want to join the Externship but somehow my friend Imani got me to come. For some reasons that I don’t even know, I decided to stay. I’m not good with technology and the only thing I know about computers is probably go on the internet. I am a very picky person when it comes to everything and I have very high standards that sometimes my friends would think that I’m crazy. My favorite season is summer and I dislike the winter especially Winters in New York. I love to eat vegetables but I’m not a vegetarian. I love to watch Chinese comedy movies and listen to music. I don’t like to watch scary movies because I get really paranoid. I also love to watch movies that have animals in it especially horses, For the last 16 years I’ve been trying to convince my mother to buy a dog for me but she says no all the time. I envy all the people in the whole who has their own dog to play with. I’m a person that doesn’t like changes.and strange places. (changes like flavor, house, room, bed, etc) I love to sleep and I can fall asleep anywhere and anytime. I hate seafood and I think I’m allergic to spice, and my favorite flavor is sour. I eat all kinds of fruits except for bananas, mango, etc.
