My name is Christian Aguilar I am 15 and I attend Trinity Catholic High School. Today was my first day of my April Break internship at Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay. I was sent here from my middle school Epiphany, who has a graduate support program to help recent graduates. I was sent here to get a feeling of how it is to work in a office space so I can be a little more familiar with having a job.
Coming into the job I didn’t know much about the organization just that the program was involved with the ocean. When I first got there I was very nervous about what was ahead of me. I got to meet most of the crew at the meeting and learn somewhat of what the company is up to. The crew was very welcoming and opened. Then I was assigned a job which was to learn about the organization and find out what they do for the community and how it benefits Boston. After doing some research and some walking around along the pier it finally hit me I knew what the program was about. Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay is not your “typical environmental organization”. They don’t always look to the government for help. The company is built from knowledge and fundamentals. The task of the program is to clean up the dirty and horrible stench of Boston Harbor. They set up goals to make the dirty water to pure water. I think the motto of the program is to save the sea life and make the water clean enough to swim in.
Looking around I got to see many sights like the boats sailing around in the smooth water or just parked in the water waiting to be used. Also I got to see many nice restaurants with high class service and food that wowed my eyes. Walking around was amazing I got to smell the fresh smell of the ocean and fish. I got to see the world trade center and the body of clean water that surrounds it. I also got to see all the minute businesses that are running along the side of the ocean. There were so many sights but next to all the sights I saw the beautiful water that surrounds those sights. I’m looking forward to fishing at the children’s museum and also joining the crew on a trip out on the water.
Maybe ill see you at the Children's Museum later!
