Student Profile

Jessica Engs

I am a senior at Syracuse University studying Television/Radio/Film with a minor in geography. I am interested in incorporating sustainable practices into our communities and the impact climate change has on coastal environments. Growing up in Los Angeles has also made me very passionate about oceans and beach cleanliness. I heard about the internship opportunity at Syracuse Community Geography through Jane Read, the geography director of undergraduate studies at SU. I was eager to apply and excited to accept the position because I wanted to get more involved in the geography department and better understand the environmental problems in the Syracuse community. Through this internship, I hope to gain more knowledge and experience with GIS and other community-related projects. After graduation, I plan to combine my interests in entertainment and geography and work for a company like National Geographic or Discovery Communications.
