A Once-In-a-Lifetime Opportunity I’m Glad I Took

by Mckel Ferrol

I feel like I have learned a lot about myself, the world around me, and as well as the work digital humanities do. My experience has been a roller-coaster of emotions. On some occasions, it can be very exciting, and on orders, it can be very demanding. However, I am very appreciative of this experience and happy that I was able to complete this internship program. My favourite project was Visualizing Caribbean Literature and seeing it completed. And my favourite part of the internship was learning all the different tools and seeing how they are implemented into all the different kinds of Digital Humanities projects. In addition, I also love meeting and interacting with all the staff and interns in Create Caribbean. The most challenging part of this internship for me was keeping up to date with all the assignments and responsibilities I had to do. As well as managing my time with school, Create, and my personal life. I got the experience of working with a team, knowing about digital humanities and most importantly managing my time. I feel like these two things are very important when going to work in the real world and with a company. From here I plan to get a masters in my field of study. My advice to others considering joining this program will be to keep on track with all your assignments and just enjoy the experience. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and you should work hard and do everything you can to get the most out of it.
