I am so excited to have been given the Digital Media Internship and to be a part of the Office of Sustainability team! As a new transfer student at St. Edward’s, I was looking for a way to get more involved in student life while also expanding my knowledge and connections within my major, Environmental Science and Policy. While this internship perfectly embodies my goal for the semester, I am also thrilled to be advocating for sustainable efforts on campus and in Austin.

Growing up near the ocean in the pinelands of New Jersey, and being an outdoor adventure adrenaline-junkie, I am someone who is very fond and considerate of the environment. I hope I can influence others to appreciate the beauty of nature the way that I do and to turn that appreciation into a personal goal to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle on St. Edward’s campus and everywhere else they explore!
