I was paid to spend time with awesome people as a Green Ambassador and do the things I love. What could be better? Every afternoon I went home satisfied with the work I had done and the things I had learned. Not only did Green Ambassadors give me opportunities to speak with professionals in many different parts of environmental science, but they also provided me with support as I worked towards attaining my goals.

As a Green Ambassador I learned how to be a leader, like working with others from different age groups, nationalities, and backgrounds. I learned how to communicate. Everyone has different ways of learning and communicating with each other and you kind of build on that. I learned that part of being a leader is getting everyone engaged in a common goal.
