Friday is the best day of the week, and that is especially true here at Educatrium. After a week’s worth of hard work on Curriculum Development with Yale intern Grace, Columbia intern Anne, and Dartmouth intern Jiyun, one of the newest members of our team (hey, guuurl!), it was nice to be able to see the week wind down and to reflect upon the work that we’ve done thus far. Up until this point, the Curriculum Development team has put in a lot of work into developing the most advanced system of classifications for SAT and ACT problems. Creating excel sheets upon excel sheets (don’t even get me started), we’ve seen our databases grow significantly from when we started, and it’s been very exciting to see our bright minds give birth (I see you, Grace) to what I think are great things.

However, although Curriculum Development is invigorating, nothing beats the time spent with the other interns, who’ve quickly become some of my closest friends. After work today, I went to the other interns’ apartment to have a kiki.
The kiki consisted of Harvard intern and my home girl Alexis and I skipping through different movies and TV shows and sitting on the couch as we talked about whatever we wanted to talk about. Although this might not be everyone’s vision of a kiki or a turn up, it was nice to simply be around good vibes and good company; that’s what Educatrium has produced: an environment in which great minds have great times. As this internship progresses and comes to its eventual end, I believe that the experiences we’ve gained will stay with us beyond our time here. Until then, stay tuned for more intern blogs that’ll cover more of our #EducatriumEdventures.
