Victoria Sanchez, '16
"I absolutely loved my academic internship position working in the UNE Environmental Health and Safety Office. I was able to work in so many different areas of the environmental sustainability field.
I learned how to maintain all three of the sustainable gardens on campus – the Rain Garden, Native Garden and Blueberry Garden. I researched and gathered information for Green House Gas (GHG) emissions inventory. I designed four piktochart information sheets for the Green Office Program. And I saw the inner workings of the campus recycling program, which allowed me to see the extent to which the overall student body is aware of and participating in it.
The most important aspect of my internship experience was its role in helping me figure out my future career path. My internship supervisor helped me determine what I want to do in life, which is work with farms and green houses that are sustainable and help them be even more sustainable. I may even start my very own sustainable green house."
