I am an eighteen-year-old studying Sociology and Political Science at the University of North Florida. I believe myself to be a hard worker. I have perpetually put the needs of others before myself, and have proven to employers, supervisors, peers, and family that I am both trustworthy and responsible. I greatly value my education, and I put my best effort into my jobs, activities, and acquisition of knowledge. My desire to work with the Environmental Center Leadership Program stems from my care for the environment and serving my community through deliberate action. I hope to be paired with a fantastic business partner within our local Jacksonville community that will teach me about their interaction with the local economy and how they are impacting the environment. I would also like to learn about their direction with their company and how local, state, and federal policies affect their ability to perform meaningful work.
