Alex Garcia Presentation

Posted on: October 25, 2009

To be honest, I had no idea who Alex Garcia was before she came in to speak to our class. Besides obviously being very talented, it’s clear that she has so much passion and enthusiasm for what she does. She explained all of her pieces very animatedly, and I enjoyed listening to every anecdote. What struck me as the most important piece of advice was her suggestion to be extremely confident, and always act like you know what you are doing. Even for those who have no interest in photography or digital media, that suggestion will undoubtedly strengthen your work ethic, making you infinitely more appealing to employers. If you need a way to stand out, what could be better than showing dedication to every task you undertake?

My favorite piece would have to be the “Scene-In” shorts. As a girl who is interested in fashion (shock of the century, I’m sure), I’m always looking for ways to update my personal style. Now that I’m living in such a vibrant and diverse city, I’d be crazy not to take advantage of everything in D.C. Some of the people she interviews had great little tips for coming up with something unique and interesting to show off, and I’ll definitely be taking their advice.

Hi Ashley,

Yes! I loved Alex’s fashion shorts… Great to see the funky (yet sometimes conservative) sides of DC fashion… Especially liked her angle of “fashion by neighborhood”…

Thanks for your blog post!

I agree with you about her passion, it was very apparent that she was very excited to talk to us about being a new professional in the media world. I think that must be a great contributor to her success–she seems to put that passion in everything she does.
