Step Up Internship: Week 1

Hey, I’m Michelle. This was my first week interning at AMA. It’s going really good. The adults have been kind and informative. I’ve learned more about financing and tobacco prevention. I also learned how to use new websites to create postcards and animations. These are easy to do because I’m a fast learner, and Stephen is patient, answers every question, and does a good job at explaining the different parts of the websites. Although we experience some technical difficulties, we make it work, and I’m still learning something new everyday. Overall, the first week of interning at AMA has been fairly easy and enjoyable. I hope through these next five weeks, I continue to gain more skills and knowledge, and create work to show my experience here.

This is also my second year doing Step Up, but my first year being at AMA. I already had some experience with digital video editing, photography, and photoshop because I take classes during school and make content outside of school. I’m really passionate about this because my father is my inspiration, and I also just enjoy creating videos and photos for others to look at.

This is a link to the first animaker/animation I made this week. As it says in the short description, it’s just a mini introduction about me.

  1. Michelle,

    Welcome to AMA this summer! We are glad to have you on board with us.

    I am so glad to hear how much you are learning and enjoying with Stephen. Sounds like you are a quick learner and asking questions when you need to.

    The Animaker you made was well done – thanks for sharing the link! I hope that you were able to show your family members, like your father all the great work you are doing. Keep it up!
