Previous to being enrolled in the Internship Program, I was working part-time and looking for a position preferably in the natural resource/environmental field. Being outside is a big interest of mine, and I enjoy a variety of activities, such as fishing, hunting, hiking, travelling, and camping.
I came across the posting for the internship through social media and knew from that moment that this was an opportunity I had to seize. I joined because I was seeking an opportunity to become involved in my community, and also to learn new skills. Personally, I find that being able to contribute to the community I belong to brings me closer to my family and friends.
After the program is complete, I hope to still be involved in water treatment for my community. I’d also like to branch out and gain new insight into other community challenges regarding treatment methods. I have learned a lot of new skills and information from participating in this internship and look forward to continuing this learning journey!
