Interlock Internship Blog #5

This location is located somewhere in East Boston and is named Studio 16. It’s a place with a ¬†new huge crew and certainly new projects.

After working at this internship, I learned that social justice can be a very complex thing to work with, but so long as you have people to help you and the will to continue, you should get through it. When you can, try your best to feel comfortable relying on others to reach goals. If you can’t rely on them, it’ll make reaching your goals much harder. Completing tasks with a group is much more productive than trying on complete tasks on your own. After all, they says, “two heads are better than one.” Honestly, I wish I knew this a lot sooner.

If I had known this sooner, I would have been able to save much more time and would have been able to get through things with much less stress.

My advice would be to find a team and really believe in it. Once you’ve established a strong bond with people you can work with, tackling any problem becomes more possible. If you want to be successful, make a choice, and try your best to stick with it.

This is a photo of the animation crew working at interlock. Everyone is doing work that they believe in and care about.

Students come from all over the world to work together in pursuing an experience that could help them eventually find a job. Everyone here has a story that stems from our background motiving us to pursue a better form of life. Projects that we have been working on for example are made to help shed light on these lives.

These projects include: Expass, Code Switching, the Fuller project, and an animation for a Doctor who works with us, known as Dr. Paul. Expass focuses on expeditions done by the Coolidge family. This family went out to create field expeditions in places like africa, asia, and around the wildernesses in America. These expeditions would later lead to interesting topics like wildlife conservation, and environmental studies. Code Switching focuses on students who have went into the Metco Program. These students were put into this program to help them receive a college education. This helps support the mission of social justice by giving students who are willing enough to go forth with study and pursue an education and perhaps find a better life. Dr. Paul works closely with interlock and helps support it with either funding or even job opportunities.

Those who are interested in these projects would support these projects and eventually learn skills to better achieve their goals.

Recently, I have been tasked with taking photos of the interns who work here presently. I also need to take some quotes from interns who are also willing to give quotes. I only take photos of interns who are willing to take the photos. I do not want to create unnecessary stress for the interns around me, nor do I wish to stop anyone from achieving their goals.
