Collecting invasive plants for a community service project
I was the Site Leader for the IBM Intern Developer Program in Littleton, MA during the summer of 2017. In addition to my regular work, I was responsible for the execution of the developer program to provide 39 interns a seamless and rewarding summer experience. I was the direct point of contact for the interns and provided support to both interns and managers.
I ran onboarding sessions to welcome the interns to IBM and get them setup to join their teams. I also coached them and helped answer questions.
Through out the summer I ran several events with the interns. I ran a 3-day hackathon where interns learned IBM emerging technologies and I hosted an executive speaker held in Littleton and broadcasted to other intern sites in North America. The interns also participated in fun activities outside of work, such as a community service event where they collected invasive plants along a river near Boston.
I was nominated by my colleagues and I won the Mass Lab Engagement Champion award for the work I did with the interns. This award is given quarterly to IBMers in Littleton who demonstrate strong leadership and make the lab a fun and engaging workplace.
