In the past three days, I’ve already learned so much as a new STA. On the first day, I learned how to log time, make my own banner for the STA blog, and was taught by Bethany how to use Photoshop. I felt so helpless, yet so excited to start this new job! I definitely appreciate all the patience and warm welcoming I’ve received from everyone in the office.
On the second day, I focused on COLA Photo ID processing. It was fun learning how to edit the photos through Photoshop, as well as contacting the clients regarding their photo submissions. It feels cool to be part of something big!
Today, I finished up my painting tutorial using Photoshop, as well as submitted another photo ID to the COLA db. It took me a while to find the “right” brush, as well as to draw with a mouse, but it definitely felt good to draw again. I realized how much I’ve missed art, since I don’t get much exposure to it as a STEM major. I can’t wait to dig deeper into using different applications like Photoshop this summer!!!
