Meet the Intern: Reniyha Barrett

My name is Reniyha Barrett, I go to Saint Martin de Porres High School located on the East side of Cleveland. My birthday is October 16th and I am soon to be 17 years old. I am a Junior and next year will be my last year in high school.

I like to go out with friends and have fun, I like spending time with my new puppy I just got, I love going to work at my part time job at Burger King , and I love to sleep. I have a mom, a dad, 2 sisters and a brother (I am the middle child) – me and my dad have the same birthday, so I get along with my parents pretty good. Some of the movies/TV shows that I am watching right now are a TV show called All American and Riverdale on Netflix and a movie called 5 Feet Apart. I love Netflix, but sometimes I watch Youtube or Hulu.

I wanted to intern with GCFC because in my opinion it is a excellent opportunity to start learning more about films. I hope that out of this I can learn more things. Something I hope to get out of this internship is to learn more about film commissions and to just experience new things because this is definitely new to me and I’m excited.


My career aspirations are to be a successful real estate agent and have my own agency where people of all kinds and races can have their dream home and always afford it. My dream of becoming a realtor can relate to the film industry because I can be something like a location scout and go to different locations and negotiate deals and to see if the specific land would be appropriate for the set.
