I decided to visit my grandparents one last time before the start of my spring semester. They asked their usual back-to-school questions. When I told them about my internship with MBDA, they were somewhat confused and somewhat intrigued. My grandparents aren’t the most computer savvy people, and explaining what I would be doing was difficult without visuals, so I grabbed my laptop from my car and pulled up the MBDA developmental site. I started explaining to them who Martha Berry was, where the school is located, etc. I began showing them a few documents I found interesting and explained the editing process. When I came across this letter, I could tell I hit a nerve.
MBDA isn’t just for the students at Berry or the people in Georgia. My grandmother had never heard of Martha Berry before I introduced her to this project and yet she still found a way to connect personally to the documents being edited on this site.
