My name is Alexia Johnson and I am a rising senior Chemistry major at Ithaca College. In addition to my chemistry major, I also have a minor in Integrated Marketing and Communications (IMC) from the Park School of Communications. This summer I will be working for Save the Harbor/Save the Bay as a Science Communications intern and I am very excited to learn how to do that in a not-for-profit setting.
Every year for as long as I can remember I would go up to southern Maine for at least a couple of days. Because of that, I have seen first-hand how things have changed over the years. Animals that were abundant on the rocks have dwindled and moved locations, big boulders that were once blocking the way now gone, the list goes on and on. Those experiences that I have had, and still have, in Maine are what caused me to be passionate about the ocean and marine life.
I'm excited to see what the summer holds and cannot wait for it to be officially summer!
