Our last trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden was refreshing, but this time we headed off to Queens Liberty Garden to do some serious clean up. There was a lot of weeding that needed to be done and we enlisted the assistance of all of the Brooklyn and Bronx interns.

Entering the garden wasn't quite exciting as one would assume. The entrance was a tall metal gate structure that gave no justice to the beauty ahead. After greeting my instructors I was told there was a scavenger hunt taking place. A map was given to me immediately, along with my instructions and what to keep an eye for throughout the Botanic Garden.

Youth Made Media is not only a place to learn how to make films, but it allows you to make new friends also. When I first got into Youth Made Media, I was filled with joy, but I also had anxiety in me. I wasn't sure how it was going to be like there, if I was going to like it or not- or if this was going to impact on what I might want to do for my career.
