It's been a while, I know you guys wouldn't usually hear from me in the winter. I know we have our weekly check-ins during the summer when I'm working as a JPA at Save the Harbor. But I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take on a position that I didn't think I would be taking on until later in life as a winter programming intern! Isn't that insane who would have thought. However, if you still don't know me even after two years! I'm definitely hurt but I'll give you a quick overview so pay attention because I'm going to be making tons of blogs this winter. My name is Dhenia Hope Mercier but you can call me Dee because we are friends. I'm attending South Shore Christian Academy, remember the school switch is to jog back your memory, if not I'll keep going. I'm in 11th grade now and I have only one word for it, stressful but I usually occupy myself with sports like soccer and track. I am currently writing up a proposal for a diversity council in my school. I've also started looking at colleges and career paths. I'm looking towards the business route so stay tuned for that.
Alright, I know you love hearing about me and what I do, but I want to switch gears and talk more about my involvement in Save the Harbor. I have been here for two years, and have grown so much as an individual. For one I don't get lost as much and know my way around the city more than I did when I started. Well, I mean, I still get lost, I miss a train stop, or I need a Bridget to pick me up from JFK from time to time, but that's beside the point. The point is I have some history with this place and I definitely have my favorite parts of the organization. But I think my favorite part about Save the Harbor is learning so much about the Boston area and the harbor that when I'm with friends or family all the info grilled into my brain from David's harbor tours makes me look like a genius.
But with this new experience, I'm really excited to get a new feel and to be put in a role where I'm directly impacting the outreach of the organization. I can't wait to see where this takes me.
See ya next week,
