My name is Megan Vidal, and I am a second year Physics and Accounting major at the Dominica State College. I learned about Create Caribbean through my friends who were already Create interns, during a conversation about service hours. At first, I became interested in the program as it covered all of my service learning hours, but upon further research, I realised that the program offers numerous other benefits. I was not familiar with digital humanities yet, but was keen to engage myself with this unfamiliar but useful subject area. I hope that by the end of this internship program I would have gained sharpened research and writing skills, and a deeper understanding of how history, geography, philosophy and literature interact and how technology aids in the display of this interaction. I can already see this being fulfilled as I work on the Space and Place project, and my individual project within that on Space, Place and Mental Health. The most challenging part thus far has been time management, and finding time to work on the main and individual projects while juggling school and club activities. The program has met my expectations thus far, and I have already learned so much. As I move forward with this internship, I hope to improve on my time management, reduce procrastination and work harder for the benefit of everyone and myself.
