Hi, my name is Niko Fernandez and I am a Freshman English major hoping to one day become a writer. When creating my schedule at Preview, I chose this class as soon as I discovered that it existed. Two of the things I am most passionate about are writing and watching movies. I also like to make the occasional movie and I took Film Production for two years in my high school, Belen Jesuit, in Miami, Florida. I also love reading books, and one quote that I have seen recently by George R. R. Martin embodies why: “’A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,’ said Jojen. ‘The man who never reads lives only one.’” I know that this quote specifically applies to books (and I also know that this is a quote from the Game of Thrones book series, which I have never read but possibly plan to) but it certainly is applicable to the watching of movies as well. I also played varsity baseball in high school but now that my baseball career is over, I hope to pursue these passions that I was not able to give much time to when I was an athlete. Quentin Tarantino is one of my favorite directors and Django Unchained is likely my favorite movie. Two other films I enjoy are The Dark Knight and Inglourious Basterds . My three least favorite movies are Spring Breakers , Spider-Man 3 , and The Last Airbender .
