The multimedia team has spent their summers across the country and around the world. While they were in training, research and recharge before the start of the school year, our employees always had their cameras close at hand. Take a look through their lenses this summer.

Miguel Beristain, Deputy Multimedia Director

This summer, I stayed in Nashville to work in an infectious disease lab at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Even in the lab, I found a way to incorporate photography through microscopy imaging! Besides that, I started taking pictures at a friend’s musical? shows and go to bigger concerts? to have fun. Despite the daily work, I still managed to get out and take pictures while attending local shows, protesting and traveling.

Arianna Santiago, Multimedia Sports Specialist

I spent my summer near my home in Seattle, interning in an Xbox Software team at Microsoft! I spent my free hours exploring the city, hiking the trails and chasing the sunsets. I also volunteered as an event photographer for the Ignite Your Torch Catholic Youth Conference and spent over 30 hours behind the lens in one weekend. All in all, it was an unforgettable summer.

Barrie Barto, Multimedia Director

I spent a lot of time on the beach this summer, enjoying time with my family and amazing views of South Carolina. In July, I took a trip to Chicago to visit friends at Vanderbilt and attend Lollapalooza.

This summer, I attended the Google CSSI program virtually, and I also visited my hometown in Nigeria. When I was at home, I cycled a lot with my friends.

Claire Gatlin, writer and photographer

This summer, I did an internship in Paris in an association called serve the city. During my free time, I traveled around France and neighboring countries.

Connie Chen, staff photographer

Last summer, I had the incredible opportunity to visit a few countries in Europe! One of my most memorable experiences was visiting the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, as well as seeing the beautiful blue and white clay buildings of Santorini. This was definitely a photographer’s dream! I’m so grateful for all my experiences last summer and I’m excited to explore other countries in the future.
