Environmental Protection Agency

Summer 2020

Position: Volunteer Intern
Student: International Relations and Global Studies & Sustainability Studies Senior

Student Name: Victoria Brandao Junior

The Environmental Protection Agency was one of the most welcoming environments I have been involved in. It is a company that focuses on the growth and personal development of its interns. I found this internship by simply googling the “Environmental Protection Agency”, and finding an open position for summer, volunteer interns. My duties are very different from usual interns because my internship is being conducted virtually, due to COVID. Currently, I am revising and updating the EPA’s website for the Clean Air Act, and noise pollution control. 

I work on updating the website so it's more understandable to everyday readers and ensure that it is appropriate as our world evolves. My favorite thing about my internship is the relationships I've made. Although the internship was conducted virtually, members in my team did a great job of reaching out to have virtual coffee talks with me.
