My name’s Kirsten and I’m the new public engagement intern here at My Wonderful World for the summer! I can’t wait to experience all that the National Geographic Society has to offer. In particular, I’m ready to play my role advocating geography and its importance in education and in understanding the world around us!
Last summer I worked with the American Chemical Society’s Education Program, where I promoted chemistry in both undergraduate programs and K-12 programs. I am thrilled to yet again be involved expanding learning in another fundamental area of study–geography! I have a lot to learn and am eager for what’s in store. So, I hope you are all as excited as I am and will follow me on my journey, both on the MWW blog and on Twitter!
