Who benefits from the work that you do at your internship?
At my internship with Growing Liberia’s Children I am directly helping the children and people of Liberia. While I was in Liberia I was not only fortunate enough to help out with my own means, but I had a team behind me and we were able to get a lot done. Through my filmmaking and photography I will create products directly associated with bringing attention and information on the issues and circumstances within Liberia.
Who in the community benefits from the work? Overall, that happens at your internship site?
As far as affected communities go, the ones I’ve influenced are overseas. For my internship I am currently just video editing and photo editing, but the “real” work was done in Liberia. I was on the go filming, photographing, looking for shots, and building a story. Fun stuff in my book.
How or why do people benefit from this work?
Along with that fun, it goes towards a good purpose - which I’m all about. From removing ignorance in overseas problems to directly changing lives of those less fortunate than us, I’ve just been helping. I am helping in any way I can, and maintaining the relations I built to continue this helping process while I am not physically there.
