I am writing this in the last hour of my 480 hour internship! It’s been such a great experience and I am sad to leave. I have become friends with some great folks and I had the opportunity to check out the city of Boston. I collaborated with my fellow interns and I bonded with some of the employees. It’s great that this experience is ending so close to the time I go back to school so my level of excitement stays high!
I learned so much about what I want to do in my future. I was scared about working at a company but I now realize that companies can be ok sometimes! They can even be great! Especially when it’s a mission driven company like WegoWise. As long as I’m doing something that I care about and I’m surrounded by great people then I’ll be happy. I learned a whole lot about personal sustainability in a way that I hadn’t thought about before. I realized that one can be normal/cool and embrace saving the planet. My friends here wear really nice clothing but they’d always buy it second hand. Also since I started here the company has created a sustainability plan for the office’s consumption. The ideas the employees have come up with have got me thinking about ideas that I can bring back to campus. A college campus is a great place to start out an idea. I am thinking of a whole new project to start once I get back to Ann Arbor based on a few ideas I’ve collected here at this internship. So look out for some hopeful new sustainability projects!
