Pacific Environment

Marine Program Communications & Writing Intern

June - August 2018 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I loved that my supervisors gave me a lot of creative agency throughout my various assignments and projects. I really enjoyed working alongside a group of extremely driven women-- extremely inspiring. The internship was extremely formative in the development of my career interests, as I now hope to go into the non-profit sector at some point in the future.

What I wish was different

Not much-- there had been an opportunity for me to go to Vietnam with the Marine Program Director for a waste audit, but I would have had to self-fund the trip. I completely understand this requirement, as the organization is quite small and has specific allotments of funds for various areas of their work. However, I would've really loved to see their on-the-ground work firsthand!

Advice

Definitely use your own creativity to formulate your own projects during this internship (in addition to the projects you're assigned)! You are given a lot fo creative agency, so take advantage of it.
