25 May A New chapter in the Woods
My name is Jonathan Ignacio Tejeda and I am a graduate student attending California State University, Northridge majoring in geography. As I have just completed my first year as a graduate student, I embark on a wonderful internship opportunity this Summer. This Summer I will be a Latino Heritage Internship Program (LHIP) Intern working at the Sequoia and Kings National Park (SEKI) in California.
Not only will this internship provide me with exceptional opportunities for personal development, but I also seek inspiration for my graduate thesis here. Within the past 2.5 years of my academic career I have grown as an emerging professional as I have realized my true passion to explore and appreciate Mother Earth’s natural beauty. I am fortunate to have very inspirational Professors that encourage their students to go out in the field and become advocates for the conservation/preservation of Earth’s natural resources.
Overall, I am overwhelmed with joy and excitement to begin my internship with the National Park Service (NPS). I Can’t wait to tell you about my upcoming experiences at SEKI its going to be a memorable time, talk to you then.
