DTE had to say goodbye last week to our wonderful intern Tony. Though we’ll continue to work with him at the Brooklyn International High School and at our major events like the Red Hook Waterfront Arts Festival, this will be Tony’s final entry to the DTE blog. We wish Tony the best of luck through high school and beyond, and give him big thanks for all his hard work around the office and at events ranging from Angels and Accordions to Added Value’s Harvest Festival.
As some of you know I was an intern at DTEtc. I was there for three months. I did many things with them. I got to watch a show called Angels and Accordions and learn more about it. What is the purpose of the show? To bring people to Green-Wood Cemetery to appreciate the history and the beauty.
I like working with Martha and everyone else because it’s not boring here. I work like I’m in a real job. I have my own computer and always have my task to complete. I challenge myself. When I’m done with my task I ask them, “Do you have some more work?” I like to work, not just sit here. This was my first job experience. I think I did great-I had no trouble just being me. One thing I liked about my internship was writing for the blog. I write a lot so that’s good for me. I will take the English Regents Test at the end of January and my writing is getting better and better.
They showed me how to run your own business and how you get money to have it keep going. I also learned some computer skills that they taught me. So I just want to drop by to say goodbye. I am going to work with DTE in the Red Hook Festival and any other upcoming events if they would like me to. Who doesn’t want a great worker like me? I am also going to Drama Club next semester because it’s a good thing for us. We are international students, so it’s a good opportunity for us to have to work with new people. I can’t miss that next semester- I have to be there.
