GATEways Outreach Program Student Coordinator, 2014-15
Arboretum Ambassador, 2013-2015
Interning with the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden was a nurturing experience as a transfer student new to Davis. My internship connected me to a wonderful group of creative and hardworking people, and it opened the door to challenging new opportunities in the form of public outreach projects with the Arboretum. A highlight of my Arboretum experience was being hired as the first student coordinator for the Arboretum GATEways Outreach program. It was a really unique opportunity to coordinate this pilot project as a student, and I can’t wait to see how the program grows in the years to come. In addition, a particularly special part of my Arboretum experience was having my family support me at many Arboretum events. Being from the Sacramento area, my family lives nearby, and they were able to share in many of the wonderful activities. I know the Arboretum holds a special place not only in my heart, but also in my family’s hearts, and we will all continue to make memories at the Arboretum in the future.
