This internship has exceeded my expectations, not only have I been given the opportunity to improve my writing, but my outlook toward the environment has completely evolved. I have really enjoyed broadening my knowledge of energy topics and the effects of various energy sources through the various articles I have written for CCSE. Overall this internship was awesome and I look forward to doing more work with CCSE in the future!”
