“I decided to join Water First for myself and my community. I did it for myself to find a successful career, but I also saw and recognized the importance of water and keeping the surrounding bodies of water healthy for all living things.

At the moment, I see myself working as a water operator in the future, but every week is something new. The program shows me new paths for water- be it treatment, sampling, distribution, or the environmental side of keeping water safe. 

I’ve had a blast in the program so far! My favourite part has definitely been bonding with my fellow interns; enviro week was great for that.”
