As you can imagine, the answers to these questions are going to be a tad strange, as my internship workplace was different.
What are the social interactions like at your internship workplace?
For the most part I am meeting a lot of new people, local to LIberia, and developing bonds with them. The filmmaking and photography is completely solo. Everyone is very nice and willing to help me in whatever they can, I love it!
Do people spend a lot of time socializing?
A fair amount of my time is spent socializing, but that is just due to LIberian culture.
Are people isolated, doing their own things?
Yes and no. Many people work alone, but there are often group events/meetings. So a combination of the both, I’d say.
Do they work in open spaces, cubicles?
Nope! Nothing at all close to a cubicle, haha. There is not one specific ‘workplace’ =, we are always traveling around Liberia, so it’s hard to say!
Lots of collaboration on work projects? Not much collaboration?
I am collaborating with Growing Liberia’s Children on the process of this video creation, but it is 90% a solo job as far as final product goes.
How does the social dynamic impact or reflect the organization’s work?
Well, GLC is impacting the community in exactly the way their name implies: Growing Liberia’s Children. Alongside this, they help other areas and organizations in Liberia.
