Leesburg Makersmiths Maker-space
A maker-space is a community tool shed where people who have ideas, “a maker,” are to use the tools and other members of the maker-space to turn their ideas into reality. During my internship, I designed a training program for new members by designing modular USB drives that the trainees would build themselves. Whether it’s teaching children how to laser cut their names into a piece of wood or 3d print prosthesis for wounded veterans, maker-spaces provide a facility to bring these ideas to fruition.

One month IT internship at IMC

The IMC internship was a one month internship at a technological consultant company. I was essentially an IT grunt. I would diagnose and fix employee’s computer issues as well as installing software and digitizing the contacts of the top executives.
