“This is what I wanted.”akhil

While completing his time as a STEP-UP student located at Asian Media Access (a JXTA community partner), Akhil was eager to hone his graphic design skills and says that JXTA was “the obvious next step” toward a career that he began cultivating in 3rd grade. At JXTA, and while Junior Director of the Graphic Design Lab, Akhil was chosen for a summer internship with the creative design firm KNOCK where, as the youngest intern, he worked on client projects such as marketing materials for the latest Star Wars and Avengers films. JXTA’s network put out a call for exceptional apprentices seeking employment and Akhil answered! The 18-year old Akhil was selected to design 75F’s entire marketing campaign!

Congrats to Akhil on his new venture!
