The Digital Divide

Throughout this semester, nothing has affected each and every aspect of our lives more than COVID-19. However, when looking at the issues that our clients in Trinidad and Tobago have had to endure, I feel lucky. At the drop of a hat, organizations such as schools, corporations, and even churches were able to shift their…

Impact of Covid-19 and Working Virtually

Covid-19 has changed the world as we know it. Most developed countries have been able to get a hold of the virus and implemented strategies to slow the spread as well as administer vaccinations.

I believe this is due for the following reasons, specifically with…

Covid and Chaos

It is insane to think that it has now been over a year since the beginning of the pandemic. In its earliest days, I remember naively thinking that the ten or so cases in China were an isolated incident and were just another crazy bump in the beginning of 2020. If I could go back…

Combatting COVID… Virtually.

This time last year, I was working as a student consultant, for my Global Service Learning class, but more specifically for our clients in Trinidad and Tobago, Nature Seekers.
