When I applied for [email protected] I knew exactly where I wanted to be placed over the summer, and it was the New Haven Land
Trust. My senior year in high school at the Sound I had the opportunity to build a bridge for the NHLT on the Long Wharf Nature Preserve with help from peers and staff. Building the bridge entailed of organizing, planning, and constructing a 16ft bridge along with railings. I learned to manage my time and plan ahead, essential skills one needs to become successful in the real world.
