Interview with SPARKS! Teen Apprentice Nadia Garcia

What do you enjoy about being an intern with SPARKS?

“I like working with everyone in our group because we come up with different ideas and get to bounce our ideas off of each other.  It has helped me be more creative.”

What are you are looking forward to while working with the SPARKS program?

“I am excited to learn more new skills.  I enjoyed learning the skills needed to become Gloforge certified.  Our team got to run the laser cutter at the FAB LAB at LCCC.  These skills help me think outside of the box.  I think that many of the things that we learn I will be able to use when I start my own business.”

 

What is something specific that has stuck out in your mind after spending time in the program?

“The thing that stuck out to me is how we came together as a group and a team even though we are all very different and had different ideas. So in the future, I know that I can build off of other people’s ideas and we can possibly come up with a better design.”
