Hey Raptors! Welcome back to another video. I’m not quite certain yet if I’m going to return as a vlogger next semester so I thought now would be a good time to share my experience making videos. Stick ’til the end to see a few (of the many) bloopers and problems I’ve faced making videos. Thanks supporting me and watching my videos throughout these two semesters. Thanks for watching this week’s video and I’ll see you on the next one.

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” I read this quote somewhere along my elementary school days and it lingers in my mind to this day. That’s why I grabbed chance by the hand and took the opportunity to be a part of this program.

My name is Alexandra Rose Atienza, but you can just call me Alex to keep it short. I was born and raised in the DMV area, but my heart lies in my parents’ hometown in Batangas, Philippines. I spent three years living in the Philippines as a child and am always looking forward to any chance to fly back home.

I am currently an architecture major looking to change the way people perceive women in architecture. My ultimate career goal is to build schools in rural communities both in the Philippines and around the world. I am also part of the Montgomery Scholars Program at the Rockville Campus. Although the work that we do in the Scholars Program is very demanding and time-consuming, I can attest that it has opened my eyes to grasp society in a different light.

Despite my busy schedule, I always make sure I leave time to relax and spend time with my family. Whether it be short trips to the grocery store or long-weekend camping trips, I am my happiest when I am with my family. When I have free-time by myself, however, I enjoy playing video games, singing with my ukulele, taking long walks, hiking, and biking.

Although this is just a snapshot of my life, I believe that you’ll get to know me more through my videos. You’ll get to experience Montgomery College through my eyes and see how it continues to shape the way I view and experience the world.

If you see me around campus, don’t be afraid to stop me and say hello! I’d be happy to talk.

  1. Great suggestions Ara (especially how you do one part one day, another part the next – this is good advice for future vloggers), and I loved the bloopers. You did your vlogs seemingly seamlessly, but this shows the effort behind it. You have been a terrific vlogger and I hope you will be able to come back.
