What drew you to IDEAS?
I first met several members of the organization while covering a story at the Dandelion Communitea Café in downtown Orlando and was fascinated by their passion and desire to help the environment. Since my chosen field of work is environmental journalism, interning with such an organization is incredibly valuable to me because of the knowledge I will gain.

Of the 5 pillars of sustainability (energy, water, food, waste, and ecology), which is the most important to you? And why?
Of the 5 pillars of sustainability, the one which I find to be of most importance would be that of ecology. This encompasses so much and the prospect of conserving wildlife ecology is vital. Protecting environments, whether at home or abroad, is incredibly important and should be done in a sustainable fashion to better promote their longevity.

What are your plans after graduation?
In late December of this year I will be moving to California to pursue a career in environmental journalism.
