Hey everyone, my name is Carlos Garcia. I am currently a senior at Boone County High School and I am very pleased and excited to be a part of the team here at Makerspace. I play soccer at Boone and I am very involved in the STLP program. As a kid I’ve always been fascinated with technology and the way it works and I always knew that's what I wanted to get into so Makerspace is definitely the right place for me. I am very grateful to have this opportunity because it will help me expand my field of knowledge in something I am very passionate about.
Hello, my name is Mark Mohammed and I go to Boone County High School. I am very fortunate to be able to partake in the NKY Makerspace program. Ever since I was young I have had this fascination (almost an obsession) with planes and how they work, which made me want to become an engineer. I love having hands on work and seeing my creations work. Begin able to work with some of the technology now that I would later have to use in my career is a big step for me and my future.
My name is Brittany and I am in 12th grade at Ryle High School. I have three cats (Smokey, Alice, and Matilda), but I really like dogs way better. I like to draw my favorite cat Matilda because she is always doing funny poses. I also like to draw people and realistic animals. I’ve always loved to draw and design and I keep telling people I’m going be the bigger, better Dreamworks. What I really like to do is graphic design, including making movies and designing things for companies. I started to learn about it in 11th grade, and just fell in love with it. I have been offered an internship at Mubea, where I will be trained and then able to design things for them! The internships at Mubea and NKY Makerspace will help me to jump into my career of graphic design!
My name is Brooke Wilson. I’m a senior at Ryle High school and I enrolled into the NKY Makerspace internship to try to improve my skills in design. I am absolutely in love with design. I enjoy coming up with different ideas, art, and stories and am fascinated with the manipulation of programs used to make concepts into reality. I’m hoping to one day be involved in a career pertaining to game development. I’m already certified in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I have some experience with 3DS Max. While I’m interning here I aspire to learn new skills and better my current ones.

Throughout my life I have always been helping my parents modify and work on the house and our cars. I am excited for my internship at the NKY Makerspace because I believe I can make a difference and build something that is useful and can help out everyone in everyday situations. This would a great start for myself because I could apply the knowledge I have gained from the Boone County High School Robotics Team and The Boone County District Robotics Team.
Update: Aug 22, 2017: Brian is now a full-time student at Northern Kentucky University, where he received scholarships and his major is Technological Engineering.
Meet our 2015/2016 Interns!
I love making videos that people will enjoy, and want to watch over and over again. Being able to bring your thoughts to life is one of the coolest things ever. I know I can create some really cool things once I put my mind to it.
Whats up NKY?! My name is Madison Hollis and I am a senior at Cooper High School. I have always had an interest in the technological side of art which includes photography and graphic design. MakerSpace is a great opportunity for me to explore different areas of design, learn more about technology, and hopefully I could run a workshop to teach community members the basics of a digital camera.
Hi, I'm Andrew French and I'm a senior at Conner High school. Technology has always been a big interest of mine and I enjoy learning and interacting with it.

My name is Hunter Clem and I'm a Senior at Conner. Everyone has or needs an escape from reality, a passion if you will. Media happens to be my go-to and it can make me the happiest and feel the most accomplished. When I create something I know what I want and love how I can figure out how to execute it. I also know how I want the person to feel when they experience watching it. I plan on taking every element I indulge in at MakerSpace and applying to what I know best and ultimately taking those aspects to enhance my creative process. I am really excited to have an an opportunity to have an outlet to let my mind run loose with ideas.
Hello, I'm Jake Edwards, a senior from Conner High School! I wondered into the vast realm of media as a child and never lost the spark that started it all.
