I am a senior undergraduate in geography with a minor in architecture, I expect to graduate in May 2019, and I am interested in outdoor recreation management and urban planning related to creating urban green spaces. I first heard of Syracuse Community Geography through fellow geography students in the internship program, and was immediately interested in its strong focus on community engagement. I believe that focusing on developing local communities through civic engagement creates better and more durable infrastructure for years to come. While in this internship, I hope to hone my GIS, communication, and problem-solving skills while helping to improve communities throughout Central New York. Eventually, I would like to get my masters in Urban Planning or some degree similar.
