Hi Everyone! My name is Kate Bacigalupo and I have interned for Save the Harbor this summer! I have been helping out with curriculum additions, photography, and communications/media. I grew up on the North Shore, recently graduated from Concord Academy, and will be heading to Hamilton College in a few days. I love studying history and government and playing the violin. I have been interested in non-profit work for the last couple of years, so when Covid-19 hit and my summer plans changed, I knew I wanted to spend my new found time productively. I found Save the Harbor and I knew it would be an amazing experience!

History has always been my favorite subject, so I was very excited to do a research project to add to the STH curriculum. I researched the histories of people of color and racial injustices on the beaches and islands of Boston. It is important to have these histories be a part of the curriculum so that kids can learn and acknowledge the systemic racism in our country, and even on our beautiful beaches.
I have had a wonderful time working for and getting to know everyone at Save the Harbor. The community here is so caring and dedicated, it was an honor to be a part of it, even if it was only for a short time!
