My name is Hannah Lynn and I’m interning at Save the Harbor for the summer of 2016! I am a rising senior at Boston College where I study environmental geoscience. I grew up in Marblehead, MA and spent my entire life around boats and beaches, so I have a strong passion for the ocean, particularly around Boston Harbor and the North Shore. Studying geoscience has given me an in-depth understanding of the chemical and physical processes that govern the ocean and the environment, so I hope this internship will give me more insight into the policy behind the issues.
As a member of the BC sailing team, I spend as much time out on Dorchester Bay as I do in class, and every day it furthers my appreciation for the unbelievable natural resources we have here in Boston. I have also spent the past few summers coaching sailing at Pleon Yacht Club in Marblehead, where I myself learned to sail. More recently, I was elected president of the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association, and I represent the New England conference in the national governing body of collegiate sailing.
Aside from sailing, I love skiing, hiking, and all things outdoors. I am so excited to be a part of the Save the Harbor team this summer and contribute to all the great things happening here!
