Andrew’s Parting Thoughts

May 15, 2012 at 8:11 am Leave a comment

On September 7th, I was offered the position of being the Community Outreach Intern at Clean Energy Durham throughout my sophomore year at NCCU, thanks to a grant from the State Energy Office.  My first impression was WOW!!!!  Coming into this internship position, I knew very little about saving energy.  I had to catch on quickly because I hit the ground running.  I had to read articles, books, blogs, and documents pertaining to saving energy and why it is so important.

This internship gave me an opportunity to enter the world of clean energy.  In today’s world, everyone wants to “go green” and energy efficiency is a constantly growing market.  This internship not only introduced me to the world of saving energy, but it also increased my skills in communication.  As the Community Outreach Intern, I have had to communicate well with the people in neighborhoods around Durham.  This internship has also increased my time management skills.

This internship has been a blessing to have in my life.  The things that I’ve learned from Clean Energy Durham will stay with me, no matter what industry I may choose in the future.


Thanks, Andrew!   We will miss you, and good luck!
