Laura and her Experience as an Earth Team Intern
Written by Laura Castillo
At the begging when I started with this Internship of Earth Team, I didn’t know how it was going to be like but later on I really liked it. Something that I really enjoy is spending time with my Earth Team because I get to experience many things. This internship helps me to be more confident with myself because I get to try new things like talking with strangers. We spend one Saturday of the month doing activities, which is fun. We spend every Tuesday in class after school, doing activities and thinking and planning our next projects.
One of my favorite activities was went we went to downtown Oakland to do litter surveys. Even though some people were being rude, we didn’t give up and we kept doing them. I hope next time people don’t act in a certain way so we get more surveys done. It was a really good experience, and I really enjoyed it because I could spend the day with the team. We all should be educated about our environment, and also we all can work together to make this world a better place.
