Our Summer Interns
This Summer we were delighted to be joined by two interns! Lee-Loi and Marco worked with us at Hello World Foundation for two months during the Summer. Lee-Loi has now headed back to school to complete his Leaving Certificate, while Marco has headed back to college to continue on with his undergraduate degree in UCD.
While working with us Lee-Loi looked helped out with design, content and resources. He shot two videos both What is the Hello World Foundation? and CoderDojo in 90 seconds available on our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/coderdojo). He also helped with preparations #DailDojo including designing the t-shirt and sourcing a staging room for the event! Lee-Loi brought a creative flair and ran with ideas and we really enjoyed having him around!
Marco worked on operations and support while with us. Thrown into the deep end Marcos first day was #DailDojo! He manned ZenDesk answering questions and enquiries from community members. He researched and set up Salesforce as our CRM tool to help us work more efficiently as a remote team. Marco sourced quotes for us and even helped with preparations for the Coolest Projects Awards. Marco was hard working and gave us some great ideas. He was pleasure to have in the office!
As we are really new this was the first time we have taken on interns for the Summer months. I don’t know about Marco and Lee-Loi but there has been a massive amount of learning from this experience for the whole team! We hope to take on interns again next summer and make it a really awesome experience for everyone involved. So if you are interested or know someone who might be keep an eye on our Blog and Twitter account for details.
From everyone at the Hello World Foundation a massive thank you to both Lee-Loi and Marco, we hope to see you again soon!
