What made you decide to intern with ‘Ulu‘ulu?
Well, I was first introduced to ‘Ulu‘ulu when I had a required seminar from my previous class in Fall 2015 to attend. I was greatly surprised and intrigued by all the media playing on four different screens. The thought of ‘Ulu‘ulu to me was techy and innovative and something that I wanted to learn more about.
What are some of the things you’re hoping to learn during your internship at ‘Ulu‘ulu?
I appreciate the opportunity with ‘Ulu‘ulu. My hopes are to learn more about archival collections and the reasons we use collections as a society. Also, I want to learn more on the trends of social media sites and how to use the trends for my advantage.
