I look forward to learning everything about marine life and spending time on the islands of Boston Harbor that I have never even stepped foot on in my life! I'm so excited to gain new skills (especially in fishing) and I can't wait to make a connection and bond with my co-workers and the children and families that we will be able to serve this summer!
Save the Harbor was suggested to me by my sister. I was really interested in working with kids and also wanted to learn something new. This job is unique because you don't get to ride a boat as much at other jobs like you do when working for this program!
At orientation we were taken on a boat and were taught to fish. It was my first time fishing ever!
Although fishing requires a lot of patience, I find it very fun! When you catch a fish it's nerve racking because reeling it up you don't know what bit the bait. But overall it's a fun experience. Except touching the bait; it makes your fingers smell like fish all day.

I look forward to working for this program this summer and being able to meet all of you!
Until next time!
