…Britt Snipes. I am currently a 19 year old junior at West Texas A&M University. I’m a double major; Advertising/Public Relations and Electronic Media. Don’t ask my what I want to be when I grow up, because I still have no idea! All I know is I love film, photography, music, and editing it all. I’m not the kind of person who wants to be on screen, I’m the ‘behind the scenes’ kind of person. I even had the chance this past semester to edit and work on production pieces for an audio class. I am involved in the Chi Omega Fraternity, Rogers LEAD WT Program, WT President’s Ambassadors, and the Eternal Flame Magazine. If you can’t tell, I like to stay busy! I enjoy cleaning (although, that came when I got my own house), reading books, mountains, hiking, taking pictures, bonfires with my friends, Netflix (I’m currently addicted to Mad Men), the Beatles, and eating guacamole. I am originally from a small town called Borger, Texas, where my family still lives today. I love my school, my organizations, and the people I am surrounded by.
My main passion I’ve acquired in the past year is filming video and editing. I worked as a videographer last year at a summer camp called Hidden Falls Ranch. I filmed the kids throughout the week and at the end I made a huge montage of the footage I had collected. I was the first videographer for the camp. My bosses were brave for picking me because this was my first experience shooting video and editing. I only had a Go Pro and Windows Movie Maker. The Go Pro was great. It could go underwater, and we had plenty of other equipment I could use. My boss had even bought one of the helicopters to fly the camera around over the canyon. Windows Movie Maker was all I could work with, because that was all that was available to me. Thankfully, WT offers a lot of classes and programs that I learned from. Now I’m experienced in multiple Adobe applications. Throughout the school year I helped with marketing for my sorority, Chi Omega. I also had the chance to make a video resume for one of my classes. I’ve come a long way in the past year. I would say my biggest dream would be to work on movies and editing because it is something I’m so passionate about. Receiving this internship was such a blessing because I get to do what I love and bring light to the ‘Stewarding Our Aquifer Initiative’.
