Sam, Student

Sam is a Summer Academy student from Santa Cruz, California and took our course, "Fashion/Food Culture/Film."

What are your key takeaways from the course?

There are a lot more jobs in fashion than just designing clothing. Also, food isn’t just about the making of it, it is about the history and past behind it too.

Who was your favorite guest speaker?

365体育备用网址My favorite guest speaker was Marjon Carlos. Ms. Carlos is a writer at Vogue and her articles consist of reporting on the contemporary fashion of African Americans. I liked her because she had very interesting perspectives and was very “woke.” She took time to challenge us to think of ways fashion intersects with activism and speaking out about current events.

Who do you think should take this course?

People that should take this course are adventurous people who like to see new things, experience new flavors, smells, and feels, and be creative with their thoughts.

What does The New York Times mean to you?

365体育备用网址The New York Times has never really meant much to me but now that I’ve learned about it, I now know that it is more than just a news source. The New York Times uses their first amendment to the full extent and brings things to the public that would otherwise be hidden. They go where no man or woman dares to go and shares with us anything from food reviews to spring fashion to families being separated at the border. They redefine the way we think of “news” and they turn it into something so much more.
