The digitization project was both challenging and interesting.  I was able to grow professionally by utilizing new skills in completing the scope of the project.  I also felt fulfilled knowing that the work was being used for a humanitarian purpose.  The coordinators and team leaders of the project were very knowledgeable of GIS and demonstrated professionalism and organization in the execution of the project.  I was impressed with the collaboration tools that were used to coordinate the project effort.

I became interested in GIS through a high school internship/mentorship with the NASA Langley Research Center GIS team.  I was able to learn GIS application principles and GIS problem solving skills through interesting real-world projects.  That internship experience fostered my enthusiasm for GIS and gave me the eye for identifying emerging applications of GIS.
