Describe a personal experience that has directly or indirectly influenced your career path.
When I was a freshman, I went to West Virginia for a service trip during spring break. While I was there, I learned about mountaintop mining, which is a way to mine for coal, and how it was affecting the communities in West Virginia and the earth. Seeing how our planet was being destroyed in order to get coal made me very passionate about ways to implement clean energy in our world today. Since then, I have been passionate about sustainability and have wanted to better our world. That is why I choose to be green and try to learn as much as I can about renewable energy sources.
Is there a particular company or organization that your heart is set on working for throughout your career?
I don't have a specific company in mind that my heart is set on but I would love to work for a company that believes in the same values as me. I want to work for someone who wants to better the earth with new technology and innovations.
What is the biggest take-away and/or favorite part of your GREEN Program experience?
The biggest take-away from my GREEN experience was from the day our group hiked on the glacier. Our guide told us how he had been leading groups to hike up the glacier for many years and he has seen the glacier melting during that time. He pointed out where the glacier used to cover and how it no longer was that large. Having him paint a picture like that for us was really impactful because we were able to see how climate change was destroying the earth with our own eyes.
