Greetings and Salutations!
|Boston, you're my home!|
I’m Amanda and I hail from the University of Massachusetts in Boston. Currently I’m a Junior majoring in History. At first, it would seem rather odd how I ended up at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. I’m a history major – what does that have to do with the environment? And I probably couldn’t tell you anything related to the ocean except that the moon affects the waves apparently. But what I do have is an affinity for learning and helping my community and that is exactly what I have been able to do at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. Despite a number of years out of the city, I’m a Bostonian born and raised. I grew up near Boston harbor, ran along the Charles River, learned to fish at Castle Island with my uncles, went whaling watching on the Boston harbor cruises during the summers, and who knows how many times I went swimming at Revere and Nantucket beach. I’m familiar with the harbor and that’s what attracted me to the organization, whose mission is to “restore and protect the harbor and bay, and to reconnect Bostonians from every neighborhood regional residents and visitors alike, so that we can all enjoy the benefits”. Because I’ve personally benefited from the clean harbor Boston now has, I want to help and make sure this continues for future generations.
