I am keenly interested in the Social Responsibility and Policy/Government Affairs internships because I hope to pursue a career in which I have the opportunity to help others through community support and/or policy. As a junior at Dartmouth College, my liberal arts education with concentrations on government and anthropology has taught me the importance of community-based organizations in a healthy democracy.

As a D1 athlete at an Ivy League school, I have many responsibilities even beyond my duties as a student athlete. Therefore, my time is meticulously planned so that I may participate in a variety of extracurriculars, such as Greek life, volunteer work, and part time jobs, in addition to striving for success in the classroom and on the field.

So, Greenwood Energy should continue to monitor the Trump administration’s view of renewable energy and react appropriately.
