“The past two months have quickly come and gone. This week took the form of a prolonged nostalgic farewell as friends made their respective departures. It is important, however, that I keep my career goals in mind. I must carry with me the connections I have gained through GLOBE, the business professionalism skills I have learned, as well as the truths about myself that I have unlocked along this journey. I have been greatly shaped by my relationship with The Nature Conservancy. My perspective will always be one of a woman in conservation.”

“Minnesota is truly a beautiful state, and I feel like I opened my mind coming here. I remember when I told everyone that my internship was here this summer and there first question was “Why in the world are you going to Minnesota?” As if they thought the state had nothing to offer and was going to be boring. I’m happy I can go back now and tell them how beautiful it was there and how wrong they were. Everyone had painted a mental picture of Minnesota to me as this super humid, hot place overrun by mosquitoes and all other bugs, but that wasn’t my experience at all here. Sure there were bugs, but what do you expect wandering around in prairies and forests in the middle of summer? I saw my first Great Lake here, and I saw the Mississippi River for the first time. I went backpacking for the first time. My list of firsts could go on forever, and I’m sure I would still miss some things.”

“As the Latino Outreach GLOBE intern in Indianapolis, IN I spoke to my supervisor often around the challenging to reach and understand the Latino Community. The discussions and learning, I’ve had with my supervisors, are amazing. Those are discussions that every corporation should have. As always, The Nature Conservancy is a leader, and I hope my work during this summer can help TNC become an early adapter on the importance of reaching the Latino Community.”
—Martin Ramirez, Duke University
“After three previous summers in the GLOBE Program, this is my first GLOBE internship that I share my location with other GLOBE interns. Being able to interact with them has been helpful. I’m getting a lot of support from my supervisor and my mentor. As an individual, I’m starkly different from almost everyone I meet, but that only results in things like learning new perspectives, ideas, even jokes.”
— Jerome Cunningham, City College of New York
“I am glad that the seasonal employees and I can work with each other. Although our positions are different, there is some overlap between our tasks and we help each other out daily. We get along great and are still able to get work done even when we’re constantly laughing about something. I have found that in the workplace, the people, who you work with, can really make a difference and influence your experience. It’s hard to have a “bad day” when you’re surrounded by others who make you happy and are always willing to help you out.”
— Emma Taccardi, Hamilton College
