I’m Nieomi Colon and I’m so glad to be back out in the harbor for my 3rd year. It’s always so fun to get together with my friends. Well I’m 18 years old and this fall I will be attending Lesley University, majoring in Early Education. I’m pretty nervous but it’s a beautiful step into the next chapter of my life. My favorite artist in Jhené Aiko and favorite song by her is Promises.
I’d like to say I’m the great mixture of an introvert and extrovert. My fear is meeting new people while I love engaging in new conversations. My goal for this summer is the same as usual, enjoy summer with the kids and be happy. Like Bruce said, “You only have fun if you let yourself have fun." Last year was great but I would like to see more growth mentally and physically and continue to educate the children that visit our diverse sites.
I’m truly blessed to be back at Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay. I meet amazing people who truly become my family, it’s something not a lot of people are given and I’ll always be thankful.
During orientation I met a lot of nice people which was rare of me to talk first but we all went out fishing into the harbor and boy did I miss the smell of the fish. It felt nothing had changed when I would tell jokes with Eric and laughed like crazy with Kharliyah. The longer I spent at Save the Harbor, the more welcomed I feel.

Glad to be back out with my amazing co-workers, it's always a pleasure!
See you soon,Nieomi Colon
