During my first day of my Shad internship at Critical Mass, I encountered new opportunities, new people, and a new environment. Right off the bat, the light-hearted, chill setting makes me feel as if I am at home. I am greeted by several friendly faces, and I am introduced to the technology and apps used in Critical Mass. As I do not own a macbook, I learn how to use it, and while doing so, I learn about all the platforms which Critical Mass uses to perform their daily functions.
For lunch, the friendly lady sitting beside me takes me to a sandwich shop and we discuss how I got involved with the company, and what she enjoys about the company, again, the number one thing being the chill environment. I am given lots of time to adjust to this new environment, however, as the positivity may not be expected by some. I believe that I will surely enjoy my next few weeks here, working, discussing, and most importantly, learning at Critical Mass.
