STUDENT: Marta Alvarez
CAMPUS: UC Santa Cruz
INTERNSHIP: Environment California
INTERNSHIP HIGHLIGHT: "I've worked on outreach for some big events put on by Environment California, such as Oceans Day and the recent rally against the Offshore Oil and Gas Leasing Proposal put forth by the Trump administration. Environment California is such a valuable place to work because there is constantly something new to do and I feel like the work I'm doing is going to make a difference in the world."
FUN FACT: "I made a stuffed life-sized giant squid when I was in high school. It's about 17.5 feet long and made of purple silk."
CAREER GOALS: "I want to do something that I can look back on when I die, and feel like I made a positive change in the world. This includes becoming a successful female scientist and using my knowledge and experience to positively influence public policy."
