We recently sat down with Marisa, a (2 semester) photography intern to learn a bit more about her. Here is what we learned:
Full name/nickname? Marisa Folsom
Nicknames: I don’t have too many, but a couple are Mari and Misa, but Mari only really makes sense in Japanese.
University and Major? Fordham University, and I’m double majoring in Visual Arts (with a concentration in Photography) and New Media & Digital Design.
What made you choose Sircle Media? I didn’t really know what to expect when I was asked to come in, but my first day at Sircle Media was so hands-on and I had such a great time shooting with Jenna and Ticha that I immediately wanted to intern here.
Most surprising discovery/realization after working here? I think I was most surprised by the amount of trust and confidence the team has in its interns. I’m used to internships that have interns do smaller tasks, but I was surprised to be assigned real work immediately and to see my photographs up on our clients’ social media platforms so soon after!
What is the best part of your internship? Working at Sircle Media has really been unlike any other one of my internships. I love how friendly and welcoming the environment is, and how confident in my abilities my supervisors are. It’s great to be able to do some real hands-on work while simultaneously having fun!
What can you tell us about Adam or your supervisor? My supervisors Jenna and Ticha are awesome, and working with them has been equally as awesome. They’re both so welcoming and friendly, and I’ve felt part of the squad from day one, whether I’m shooting, editing, or in front of the camera. They give me great suggestions and directions for my photographs and edits, and I’ve learned a lot from them. Simultaneously seeing them do their work has been very informative, and gives me new ideas that I might not have come up with on my own.
Advice you would give to a future intern? Be confident in your own abilities! There’s a reason why you’re here and the rest of the team is confident in what you do, so show them what you’ve got.
We are so pleased to welcome the newest member of the Sircle Media Clan, Amanda Abrams. She is a very smart girl and the youngest we have ever had on staff at 19. Today was her first official day with the crew and she was incredible. As soon as she walked through the doors, she was focused on making an immediate impact, and that she did! We asked her some questions to learn a bit more about her and this is what we found out:
What is your name- Amanda Abrams
What made you get into social media? I decided to get a Facebook in the 9th grade so I can keep in touch with my camp friends! After that, my Facebook just exploded. I started using Twitter and Instagram a little over a year ago and I am now obsessed! I am constantly checking what the brands and my friends I am following are saying. Social Media is changing the world and I am happy to be a part of it!
Where were you born? Dix Hills, NY
How old are you? I am 19 years old.
What is your favorite color and why? I love green and purple, especially when they are next to each other. I’ve liked green since the 5th grade for some reason and purple just always tends to catch my eye!
Best comedy film of all time? The Ringer!! I die of laugher every time I watch it!
What was the last thing you listened to on your iPod? Why Georgia by John Mayer
One celebrity you would take on a date and why? Ryan Gosling! I love every single movie he is in and he is just so good looking and simply perfect in every way.
If you were on a deserted island what 3 items would you need (no electronics allowed)? I would bring a bag of Smartfood popcorn, a compass, and a pair of socks (you always need socks!!!).
We are so pleased to welcome Dianna Falzarano to our family and we know she will be an instant hit with our clients. Dianna brings both fashion and PR experience to the team and will no doubt be a great help in sourcing influencers for our client’s products and services. We sat down to get to know her a little better and this is what we found out:
What is your name- Dianna Falzarano
What made you get into social media? I enjoy posting and following my favorite brands, designers, actors, actresses etc on all social media platforms. So I kind of thought what if I was the person on the other side? Social media is changing everyday and I feel that now is the best time to get into the industry and learn more about it. I can evolve while social media evolves too. Now that I’ve landed this job at Sircle it’s such an exciting start for me. I can’t wait to show people my personality and creativity through my work with clients.
Where were you born? Bethpage, NY at Mid Island Hospital
How old are you? I am 23 years old
What is your favorite color and why? I love aqua and turquoise. It is the color of my room at home and reminds me of the beach and summer. It is also a great accessory color!
Best comedy film of all time? Wedding Crashers hands down.
What was the last thing you listened to on your ipod? I don’t care (I love it) by Icona Pop. I probably have played it 100 times this week.
One celebrity you would take on a date and why? May seem a little strange, but Jennifer Aniston. Everyone knows I am weirdly obsessed with her (I only drink smart water). I would love to sit down with her for hours! She has a simple, but sexy style and her body is amazing!
If you were on a deserted island what 3 items would you need (no electronics allowed)? Is it a sunny island? I would need my tanning oil, a brush, and a bag of rips candies. With those I am set!
The Sircle keeps on turning and we keep bringing new, great personalities into the family. We sat down with our newest and favorite intern Meghan recently and this is what we found out.
What is your name? Meghan Molano
What made you get into social media? I have always been interested in social media because it is something that I have basically grown up with and have been involved with for several years. Social media is a big part of my life and I believe that if you have the right mindset and skills you can use social media to your advantage in business.
Where were you born? I was born in Babylon, NY
How old are you? I am 21 years old.
What is your favorite color and why? My favorite color is purple because I think it looks good on almost anyone and anything.
One celebrity you would take on a date and why? I would LOVE to go on a date with Ben Affleck. I know he’s married but he may be one of the most handsome men on earth. He also happens to be one of my favorite actors!
