Q: What was your first impression of CELF and our team?
KS: My first impression of CELF was the collaborative team environment. Everyone is very welcoming and supportive and genuinely cares about the mission and helping teachers achieve the end goal of sustainability.
Q: What drove you to apply for and accept an internship at CELF rather than another organization?
KS: I applied for an internship with CELF because I’m very passionate about environmental justice. I was really drawn to CELF’s mission specifically because I believe that education is the best way to approach any social cause. I had a really incredible environmental education in high school, and that helped shape my worldview and my actions, and I think that every student should be given the same opportunity.
Q: What do you contribute to the CELF team both professionally and personally?
KS: I bring creativity and communication skills to the team, and I think that those are really important skills for advancing a mission like CELF’s, especially in a time when creativity is required to adapt to such an unusual situation.
