what is your dream job?
If I could tell you, I wouldn’t be stressed about what to do after I graduate!
what is your favorite thing about new haven?
I love the size. From a small-town person’s perspective, New Haven is happening, and the communities are tight-knit and care a lot about their city.
what have you been doing as a summer fellow?
I am conducting a Greenhouse Gas Inventory of the emissions of everything that happens in New Haven. This includes government, community, and business emissions.
why did you choose to become involved in this type of work as a summer fellow?
what excites you most about your fellowship and the work you’re doing?
how is the work you are doing important for the organization?
We will use this inventory to measure progress as the city takes actions to combat climate change! Without knowing your starting point, there is no way telling how far you’ve come. This and subsequent inventories will hold us all accountable.
