Meet the ENC’s newest Grounds Keeper and Composting Intern, Nhi! This coming fall, she will be a senior at La Quinta High School.
Nhi’s passion for the environment and nature began in 6th grade. She became intrigued by the way “everything was interconnected, even in the most unexpected ways”. Ecology field trips, exciting hands-on labs, and an AP Environmental Science class furthered this interest. And now, she is interning here at the ENC!
Nhi is especially excited to be the Grounds Keeper and Composting Intern, because of its emphasis on botany. She views botany as “one of those fields that goes in-depth on things that people tend to overlook, and accentuates how the world is composed of more things than just humans and what we see as important”.
Viewing this internship as a way to “immerse herself in a more hands-on experience”, Nhi is thrilled to continue to explore this field. In college, she will seek a major in environmental biology and a minor in botany.
Welcome to the ENC team, Nhi, we are so happy to have you!
