Yejin Ki '19

What are your interests?

As someone who has worked on sustainability and food recovery, I am interested in attaining sustainable lifestyle. Working as a core member for the sustainability office and the Food Recovery Network at Earlham College, I learned the ideology, philosophy, and environmental rights necessary to successfully meet the expectations of this internship. I am currently holding some events to improve sustainability on campus and leading a movement to train students in order to turn off all unused lights in the residence hall at night. In addition to these activities, I am working on collecting the leftover food from the dining hall and donating it to the Richmond community. I believe that this activity will reduce the wasted food and be the first step to fight against world poverty.

What are you looking forward to this summer?

This organization is an educational institution aiming to train activists to fight global warming and global poverty. As an Intern, I will be able to further foster my love of learning about global issues and protecting the environment from global warming.

Goals I have for this summer:

I live my life as a marathon both literally and metaphorically. I’ve checked my pace, regulated my breathing, and continued pounding down the difficult road of my college life. Obstacles do not bring me down; instead, they empower me. Following this value, my goals for this summer is challenging different areas and being brave and adventurous. I do not want to spend my whole life in limited space but experience more new things.

What I hope to achieve with this internship:

I’m from Korea and I currently reside in Indiana. I would love the opportunity to meet new people and explore the wilderness and beauty of nature while working. After obtaining a Bachelors Degree from Earlham College, I plan to use my knowledge of biochemistry to solve environmental problems. I regard environmental problems as the source of a lot of current conflicts in the world, especially in Africa. Because I want to promote peace, I hope to become an environmental activist, working towards solving water problems and poverty. I believe that this internship with help me prepare for a career in environmental science.
