My most recent endeavor was traveling to Barcelona, Spain in April visiting my brother who completed a semester abroad. I specifically reference this experience because it is an example of something that I enjoyed and had a lasting impact that reached me even after the trip, much of what I expect to happen this summer in my time working with Save the Harbor.

After the introduction process was completed the description and expectations for the summer began which made me excited to see what Save the Harbor had in store. Being an intern in a room mostly full of youth group staff, my role was somewhat unclear, but after a few hours of immersion into the group the role didn't really matter, I was more focused on meeting the new people. What I soon found is that the people working for Save the Harbor, especially the senior staff, were very eager to help and make you feel like you belonged. That quality is what stood out for me most during orientation, and gave me some comfort in a time where I was not quite sure what to do.
