Tell us about your Capstone Project experience and initiative.
My capstone team developed a project involving the use of wave energy in the largest tidal area in the world, Bay of Fundy, Canada.
How are you leveraging your experience on The GREEN Program?
I talk about my work with GREEN at every opportunity I have. I have increased my network by collaborating with a company that fully supports GREEN, Dayaway Careers. Dayaway Careers has been a platform for me to spread the concerns with sustainable development to my fellow classmates at Howard University, and network with people of color in my career field. That was something I never thought I’d see. Still to this day, I actively brainstorm ways with Dayaway Career's Founder how I can always be a step ahead as I look for a career in Renewable Energy after my military service.
