If I were to try and tell you guys all that I learned and all that I did, it would be a very long blog indeed! But I’ll try to tell you what I did the last 3 days of my internship. I was given the task of taking pictures (Passport Size) of as many members of staff as possible so it could be used in their files. This was exciting to me because I practice photography both leisurely and professionally, it was an opportunity to show the skills I have acquired. By doing this I was able to meet a huge portion of the staff of Hunt Deltel and learn about what they do, they were all friendly and would happily oblige for me to take a picture of them. I even got the chance to explain to them what exactly the Blue Economy Internship Programme was, and they then told me what a great initiative it was, and I totally agree with them.
Conducting a survey amongst the staff was such an honor and privilege, The survey was written by myself and was based on company knowledge, everyone I surveyed were totally fine with me taking 2 minutes of their time to carry out my survey which was very successful .
These past few weeks I’ve become more concerned about our environment, the ocean and so much more, I’ve conducted many researches of how I could help as an individual, because I want to be able to be considerate in what I do, in what I buy, in basically everything I do. I intend on spreading the knowledge I acquired among my family, friends and to everyone who is ready to listen and help in changing our environment.
When it was time for me to leave I sat at my desk and looked around the office and smiled whilst I looked at all the familiar faces that were all strangers to me two weeks ago. I had become part of such a united team. I had been so timid on my first day and very, very anxious I have come so far. I have become more responsible, humble, and mature. These people taught me the true meaning of hard work. This experience was not what I thought it would be, never would I have imagined this experience to be so amazing.
I remember when I went to the open ceremony I felt so intimated by the other interns; I kept thinking how was I chosen? Can I do this? And guess what? I did do it. It was not easy between studying for my finals and doing my work assignments. But I did do my best and gained a lot from it. This journey would have never been possible, thank you to all of you who made this possible, and helped me. I will be forever grateful.
For now, Bye
