COVER LETTER


Alexis Natalia Martinez April 26, 2012 Yummieland Frozen Yogurt 4580 E. Michigan Street Orlando, FL 32812 Dear Sir, Since the store on Michigan just opened I assume you need quality team members to help. Although I do not have official work experience I do have experience. As the ads editor on my high school yearbook staff this past year I met with parents and students. I communicated with parents to discuss what they wanted for their child’s senior page. I had to handle not only their pictures and information but their money as well. It was part of my position to receipt advertising and write deposit slips. Following that I associated myself with business owners as well. I had to speak with them in reference to the ad they purchased from a staffer. Also, being on staff requires being part of a team; we work together to produce an award winning book. Honestly, I love meeting new people, and having good conversations with them would have to be my favorite part. I love helping people with anything they need and I would make sure they are having a pleasant visit to the store. I would love to be considered to be an official team member at Yummieland and thank you for your review. Feel free to contact me at anytime convenient to you to schedule an interview; I hope to hear from you soon. Respectfully yours,

Alexis Martinez Enclosed: resumĂŠ

PERSONAL

ESSAY


I like journalism for the news and design. I really like to know what’s going on and I think certain design is really interesting. The design of yearbook is probably my favorite part because it could be so diverse. There is not only one available thing to do with layouts, there are so many possibilities that could be done. I always wanted to be involved in yearbook ever since middle school because I thought that was awesome. Once I started high school I didn’t know how to get on yearbook until my friend told me to start with journalism. I took her advice and that’s when I fell for journalism. To succeed in yearbook I had to go through a journalism class then prove myself once I entered yearbook. In order to be an editor I had to show that I was good enough to be an editor. Once I became an editor I contributed my design skills to the ads section of the yearbook. I worked on ad pages, a story, quote pages and the retirement page. I also helped with anything else needed to be done throughout the year. I want to continue with design and possibly advertising but I don’t know how far I will be going in the journalism career.


SELFANALYTICAL

EVALUA

TION


I have learned so much in this course this year. I wouldn’t know anything about InDesign or Photoshop without this class. I love being able to know these things because I feel like I can make professional looking anything with these skills I have gotten in this class. I have also learned a lot about teamwork because no one can produce something this amazing without help from people. I learned a lot about dedication because without it this wouldn’t be possible. If I wasn’t dedicated to have this book look good or my section it wouldn’t and I would have let people down. Dedication is the only way to survive in something you love. I can use all the skills I’ve learned here in the future because I feel like being in this course has taught me life lessons that could be used at anytime from now on.


REFLECTION

One


For this reflection I chose the story I wrote about siblings going to the same school. I chose this because it was the only story I wrote and I can’t choose between my ad pages. I’m proud of my quote pages as well but this story was something I had to write myself. I related to this story because I had to attend Boone with my brother for two years and to see how other people related to their siblings was interesting. It was difficult to start this story because the two sets of siblings I interviewed hung out in different ways. The brothers hung out at school while the brother and sister were closer off campus. When I did finally get an angle for my story there was still so much to correct. Since I don’t write yearbook stories all the time I had a pretty good amount to fix after the first draft got graded. I only got better from there because I had a direction to go after I saw what I was supposed to do. Once I got the story written and on its way to deadline I worked on getting pictures of siblings around school. It was simple to get the brothers because they would hang out together since they were so close in age and they were able to be around the same group of students. They rode together, sat together in the mornings and had some of the same friends. Because of that I was able to get a picture of them talking together and it was all natural since that was their usual. The other picture I got was of a brother and sister that were close not only because of their age. The brother is deaf so I was able to capture a photo of them talking through sign language. It was one of my favorite parts of the page because I think sign language is interesting. Also, him not being able to hear made them have a closer relationship because they share something not everyone can. The quotes in the story are relatable to so many people and that’s another thing I like about this topic. The last thing is no matter how close or not close someone is to their sibling they can always find something to bring them together. The fact that their family is so much stronger than people would think.

2 [1] sign to me. Seniors Jennifer Ward and Timothy Ward use sign language to communicate before lunch. “Him being deaf and me knowing sign language [allows us to] communicate better; he’s my best friend,” J. Ward said. Timothy was the second son in their family that was hard of hearing. [2] talk it out. The Ferrari brothers, Bruno and Brian, talk outside the media center before school. “[Our relationship] is different everyday. Some days it will be loving and we’ll help each other, other times we argue,” Brian said. Bruno and Brian shared a room and tried to do everything together.

Distraught from a difficult day of school, he didn’t have to look much farther than his own house to find a solution. He found a best friend in his room that could be found on campus. Siblings could be the best of friends or the worst of enemies. Junior Bruno Ferrari and sophomore Brian Ferrari had their arguments, but got through hard times. By agreeing to disagree they discovered a way to argue less in their relationship as brothers. “We usually argue over stupid things and that just gets in the way of our friendship,” Bruno said. The Ferrari brothers never had to worry about doing anything alone or being bored due to their common interests. Whether it was playing video games or sports, or just spending time together, the siblings found a common ground that extended farther than their blood. “[My favorite part about having a strong relationship with my brother is] the fact that I know there’s always someone I can go to. If I need anything, I can always count on him,” Brian said. The siblings relied on each other for motivation. They knew they could go to each other when they needed to stay focused, and they weren’t afraid to ask one another for advice in any situation.

May the Lord guide you and keep you in his path. Be strong and positive with the challenges of life. Succeed and reach for the stars. Congratulations. Love always, Mommy, Daddy, Ma, Nick, Patches, Sue, Don, Vlad and Yoric PS: High five NUM [ad by alexis martinez]

“I’ll ask [Brian] to help me when I need to keep motivated [because] when he’s determined, he’s determined and nothing stops him,” Bruno said. The brothers were not the only siblings that had a close relationship. Junior Katelyn Devlin and freshman John Devlin kept their relationship close by avoiding arguments while they hung out together at home or while driving around in the car. “[Our relationship is] really close,” Katelyn said. “We don’t fight, we just laugh.” The Devlin siblings were able to be together with minimal problems. They spent time together with mutual friends without having it feel like babysitting. “[John] is easy to get along with; he can chime in when we say a joke without it feeling awkward,” Katelyn said. “[And his friends] make little kid jokes; it’s funny.” The siblings knew they could count on each other if they needed help with academics or any kind of problem. It was a friendship of a different kind because it went beyond a typical high school relationship. “[Katelyn] helped me when I first started here. It’s good knowing there’s someone there to help you, you’re not just out there alone,” John said. [alexis martinez]

REFLECTION

The piece of mine that could still use work is the Law Office of David E. Mallen’s business ad page that looks plain. The design that was sent to us was on paper with a picture that was too grainy for the yearbook. It had a note to find it online but that photo didn’t have a high enough resolution to use. I e-mailed whomever bought the ad and I never got a response. Once that had happened I made a phone call to the number on the contract and got an assistant of Mr. Mallen. He was busy so I left a message and she seemed to have no idea that he had bought an ad from us. I left a number to be reached at but yet I never got a call back. It was close to deadline and I was busy so I only got a chance to call back once more, that didn’t work either. I decided on filling the empty space with a brave head in honor of Boone and I sent a proof to the e-mail I was given. I had to make slight changes to the whole page because I didn’t have access to an appropriate photo. I had to send the page to print even though I never got a response from the buyer and I think that if I could have gotten that picture or suggestions to change something from the buyer it would look better than it does now. It does not look terrible but it’s not what they sent it to look like. If I had to do this over I would work harder to contact the buyer of the ad. I want everyone to be satisfied with what they bought and have no complaints. I want more than a few phone calls and e-mails to say that I tried to get in contact with him. I want to make sure that the people know I am trying my best to give them what they want so they can be totally satisfied with nothing bad to say about it. Also, keeping on calling and e-mailing the person makes it fault on theirs if they don’t respond and there is something wrong. I can’t help it or fix anything if they don’t let me know what to do. I can only hope I did a good job and they like what I have done with their page. I hope Mr. Mallen decides to like what I did with his page since I couldn’t find the original photo that he wanted. If I had thought more ahead of time with this page I feel it could be better.

REFLECTION

I am proud of this picture because it is a dominant in the book. I like this photo because it has a visual interest that isn’t a person. When I took these photos I thought it was so cool the way they got to learn how to use a fire extinguisher so I really wanted to capture the effect I saw in real life. This was one of the only angles I could use since substance in the fire extinguisher spread so much. I love how the smoke effect is in this picture and in the book it looks like its fading right onto the page. The two people here are also not directly in the middle making use of the rules of thirds.


REFLECTION

This picture was used as a background on the history of traditions page. I like this photo because it has so much in it. There are the football players to the right; cheerleaders and the rowdy crowd to the left and center; and students crowded around them all. The center of visual interest would have to be Desmond, holding the flag with a brave head on it, standing next to Bradley. I think this picture is full of excitement and hype. I love how everything from our last senior snake is combined and every one is getting excited for the night to come.


REFLECTION

This picture was posted on the web under the blood drive photo gallery. This picture is not relative to the book or school but I love it because of the depth of field, rule of thirds and how clear it is. Rain drops are visible and Tim is the only one in focus which makes him the center of visual interest. This was taken before he went to give blood on February 6, this blood drive was in honor of Laura Grant and Eddie Culberhouse. I think that the fact that this picture was not posed at all is my favorite aspect. None of these people know this picture was being taken and the way Tim’s eyes are looking is in the perfect direction. Also, the people in the background are doing their own thing. It’s not the best picture I just really like it.


REFLECTION

My position as Advertisement Editor gave me a specific job for the whole year. Being on the Legend Yearbook staff is exciting and knowing I helped produce the yearbook makes me feel good. I was an asset to the staff by being on ads. I helped meet with parents and students about their individual senior pages as well as deal with money that came from business ads we recieved. I had to organize and reorganize the ads section based on the alphabet. I also designed the basic layout so the three students on ads staff can work from them. Once all the ads were settled and a full ladder was developed we started to work on the ads themselves. I worked with two other staffers to produce all of the senior and business ads that came out in the book. I worked hard on making these pages as best as I could because I know how important they are to people. I not only worked on my assigned pages but I graded the other staffers pages as well. There was so many pages but I graded as fast as I could. In addition to grading and doing my own pages I had to work on a story duing deadline one and a quote page during deadline two. I tried to balance everything I had to do so I could get as much done on time as possible. I separated what I had to do at school and what I could work on at home so I could work from that. I did my best to produce my best because I know how much this book means to the school but mostly to the yearbook staff in total.


REFLECTION

Five


Problems arise on ads staff all year but a lot occur in the beginning of the year when we meet with parents for the first time. Parents and/ or students decide not to correctly read all of the rules and regulations before they come to purchase the ad which makes them either mad or disappointed when we turn them down for some reason. Some parents can take it while others are just rude about it. My favorite are the parents that understand but that’s less than half of the people we meet with. I try to be as polite as I can be to them and explain the situation to them as nicely as possible. There’s also times when they don’t know what I’m saying so I have to explain to them in different words and try to get them to understand. It’s hard to deal with parents at times because we only do things a certain way so the pages look as best as possible, we don’t want the page to look bad and have them blame us. After we start to work on the pages we send proofs to the parents so they can see what we have done. They are either OK with it or they have multiple things to change. The parents that want to change the design are the most difficult because some don’t understand that some things have to be a certain way. I had to deal with parents telling me to change something I couldn’t so I had to tell them in the most polite way possible that I couldn’t do what they wanted. I learned how to be polite about certain situations and if I can’t handle a situation then bring in some help from an elder. But it’s mostly the fact that I have to be as kind as possible and make sure they know I am trying to please their desires. This gave me in tell into what people in life are like and allowed me to practice how to handle rude people. I also learned to be more proper and allow my adult to show and now I can let anyone know I’m not a kid. I thought I handled the situations I came across in the most adult way I could think so they would understand.

On my mid-term I stated that my greatest weakness was staying focused for long periods of time so I can get all my work done. I did better this semester with some of my time. I was able to do a little bit more work because I figured out what I needed to do and separated it so I could get it all done in a timely manner. I worked out a schedule for myself on what I needed to be doing at school that I could not do at home. I would do that and if I could do anything at home I would do that because I can get more work done at home than in school. When I would get home I set aside some time to do my work and try my best to stay focused to get it done. If it was something I could only do at school I would see when I could do it and get it done. I still get distracted but I worked at it so it’s a little better than last semester.

I would like to submit to Y38. I want to submit this because his mom wanted his dominant photo to be centered then she wanted three separate body copies on the page. I had to fit in what she wanted while also staying in the basic design of the rest of the pages. I think this page turned out well considering rules I had to follow and she approved the first proof I sent her.

My portfolio from last year is something I am proud of but this one is more advanced although it is still simple. Last year I did not use photoshop for my design but rather just used InDesign for my whole portfolio. I didn’t know what to do so I did something that reminded me of the moment. Even though it is simple I like my portfolio from last year. My favorite part of the design is the font because it’s something I love. This year I used photoshop to color in the flower and to cob out the flower so I could use it as a border. It is still simple but not in the same way. This year is wans’t just typed and placed into a document. I put more thought into this portfolio and I like the way it turned out. I feel like this design is more mature and since the rose is drawn I think the font goes well with it because it looks written with pencil. I wasn’t going to do a wrap around with the flowers on the copy but the more I thought of it the more I wanted to do it. The writing is different because I have grown and it’s only one year but it’s still a change. I tried to get some of the words to look like they are hanging from the leaves and I think that is more advanced because I had to cover some parts to make it look like that. I think it looks the best on the cover where the 2012 looks like it’s hanging. I like simple things and my portfolio shows that while also showing what I can do.

It’s good knowing there’s someone there to help you, you’re not just out there alone,” John said. [alexis martinez]

God has also given each of us different gifts to use. . . If we can serve others, we should serve. If we could teach others, we should teach. If we can encourage others, we should encourage them. . . If we are leaders we should do our best. If we are good to others, we should do it cheerfully.

We celebrate the many gifts you have been given and the many ways you share them with your family, friends and church. From baby of the family to the biggest brother; youngest Tiger Cub to accomplished Eagle Scout; basketball player to basketball coach; Sunday School student to Mission Team leader, wherever your passion leads you, we look forward to being part of your journey. We love your forever, we love you for always, as long as we’re living, our baby you’ll be. Mom and Dad

From that terrifying moment 18 years ago when you decided to make your grand entrance into the world two months early, we knew God had truly blessed us with an incredible miracle. To say you were a handful in those early years is a huge understatement, as you were absolutely fearless and ridiculously headstrong. We have to admit that you have never made things easy, but sharing life with you has certainly never been dull. You are funny, kind-hearted and loaded with talent, and watching you change into the wonderful young man you have become has been our privilege. We have truly enjoyed all the years of baseball and thank you for allowing us the opportunity to watch you play. You have definitely made us proud and we will always be your biggest fans. As you move on to the next chapter in your life, always believe in your abilities, and put your faith and trust in God and He will lead your way. We believe in you and know that you will accomplish great things, and we will be there to support and love you along your journey. Believe in yourself always, as you are filled with unlimited potential. Dream big and don’t be afraid of failure - it’s the only way we grow. You and your brother are, and always have been, the greatest joy of our lives. We love you and thank God for blessing us with you, and we are so thankful that you are our son. May God bless your life in every way possible. All our love, today and forever, Mom and Dad
