Year Three on the Sea!!

Hello everyone! My name is Aleena Mangham and I am from Boston Massachusetts. This past June I graduated from Boston Latin School and will be attending Howard University as a Criminology major in the fall! At Boston Latin I was very invested in Talented and Gifted, a dance program that dove into the Latin American culture. At Howard, I plan to do many things including internships, getting involved in their African American Studies Program, and furthering my knowledge in order to fulfil my aspirations of working in the Equal Justice Initiative or Innocence Project. During my free time, I love listening to music and hanging out with my friends, but during quarantine I have used my time to prepare for college whether it is doing summer tests or learning how to cook, 

U.S Coast Guard 2019!!
I loved meeting everyone at orientation and getting to know all of the new faces a bit more by playing “Where The Wind Blows.” It is exciting to be reunited with all of the friends I have made from Save the Harbor and knowing I’ll be able to make even more. One of my favorite things about working here is the amount of people I meet each summer, and the amount of friendships I have made in the past years. 

This is my THIRD year on the harbor and I'm just as excited as if it were my first, I mean, obviously--I came back right?! Save the Harbor has been one of the biggest pushes for me to get out of my comfort zone and find an interest in Environmental Science. Not only did it push me to take a course in it during my senior year, but I find myself bragging about working here all of the time! While this year will be nothing like the last two, I am beyond excited to use our technology to expand Save the Harbor’s knowledge out into the world on bigger platforms. With videos and lesson plans, I hope our energy and ability to educate stays alive!! I am grateful to have a wonderful team to navigate through this uncertainty with, and I’m thrilled to see what the summer brings! 

SEA you next time,
Aleena Mangham
