1 year, 8 months

What are your future goals professionally?

Probably by the end of this year I will be back to school. I want do my degree in Environmental Education. I want to specify in environmental health.

How is working at IE helping you towards your goals?

First let me say, I’ve learned a lot from Impact in terms of how to be a professional. I’ve realized how to conduct myself. As well, I’ve learned a lot on socialization.

What was your most memorable experience at IE?

When I was given a new project. I was excited and I was nervous because that was my first time being in charge of a project. I didn’t want to fail on the project, but I got to gain some experience relating to my colleagues and working with management. I’ve also learned to take responsibility for all the work that I do.

What are you passionate about?/ What are your hobbies?

The reason why I want to study is because of how the environment is being managed and I want to do more to increase my impact and help others learn how to understand the issues of the environment.
