The Creative And Powerful Mireya

Hi World Wide Web. This week we interviewed Mireya. She went to college at the amazing Art Center College Of Design. Her career is a graphic designer. Her degree is in Bachelors Of Fine Arts. At first she wanted to become a lawyer. She really thought about it and went back to school to become a graphic designer. She owned her own bussiness called Phi Design that makes a lot of fantasic logos. Because she owns her own business she has two parts business and design. She work in her apartment so she does not have to rent a building to do work in Brooklyn, New York. She said that when you write on paper it takes you to another world because you can express your feelings. She said that we have different interests. She helps people make logos for people's website. I love this interview, because she show passion in what she was saying. I will be the first to admit that she is the most creative person that have met and interviewed. She showed us her sketchbook with her work. When she give her clients their logos she wants to hear honest feedback. She don't want them to give happy feedback it if really not good. And someday I might change my career and become a graphic designer and be just like Mireya. There is no doubt that I will never forget this interview.

The Fabulous Jackie

This week we continued our "We've Got Our i's On Careers". We interviewed someone special from Clemson, South Carolina and her name is Jackie. She works at Clemson University. Her job at the school is Associate Director Of Student Media. The school she works at has there own newspaper and radio station. She has to check to make sure that her work is right before she puts it out there. She likes working with college kids, because they are fun and interesting. Part of her job is to critique students work in the newspaper. Jackie went to South Carliona University. She went there because it was close to her family, and it was not to far away. The most important thing that she learned is always ask for help or you won't succeed. She told us that reviewing your work is very important. Sometimes your first idea is not your best idea. Her advice was work hard from the start, and don't let yourself get in the way of your dreams.  She said if she would change a career she would open a bakery. I learned a lot about her and I hope you did too. Thank you for reading. 

Samantha The Pharmacist

This week we continued our "We've Got Our i's On Careers" project and interview Samantha. Samantha works as a pharmacist at St. Mary's Hospital in Decatur Illinois. Samantha went to Southern Illinois Universiy in Edwardsville. She had to do specific classes in biology and medical science to join the School of Pharmacy. Her job is like a safety officer, because she has to make sure the medicine is right that she gives the patients. She gets call from nurses and doctor call her. She picks the right and safe medicine. So the patients will become healthy again. We also learned how she has to be calm. If she's not calm she can make a lot of mistakes and give the people the wrong medicine. Samantha has to double check her work before she gives it to a doctor or nurse. She tells the nurses the right kind of mixture with the medicine for the patient. She always have to double check her work. I also learned that all medication in the hospital is her responsibility. Her first job of the day is to check and make sure the medicine the In the machine is correct. She's not only working at St. Mary's, in the evening she also gets orders from Effingham and Streeter. She works the evening shift because the hospital is open 24 hours a day.
