It has been an absolute pleasure to have been part of the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust team this past summer! I would like to thank Rebecca, Faye, Brooke, Nicole, Mathieu, and Laura for an extraordinary summer! Each one of them have such bright minds and huge personalities, I have learned so much from working by their side this summer and it was the best experience. They’re definitely my role models and one of the very few people I look up to in life.
This was by far the best summer job I’ve had! My very first project was to help Faye with the 2nd annual Living with Wild Life Symposium held in Ucluelet, it was very fascinating to see all the schools interact with one another, I thought it was such an excellent concept for the kids and I’m glad I was part of a really fun and active sunny day! After about 3 weeks in the CBT office I had an unbelievable opportunity and I was absolutely unquestionably thrilled to attend a one week conference called Co-building Sustainability and Reconciliation held in Baie-Comeau, Quebec. It being the first province (other than BC) I have ever been to and on top of that, meeting wonderful people from other biosphere reserves across Canada, learning about their biospheres was really something to appreciate. Being so young and getting involved in the work of biosphere reserves was an amazing experience, and I would like to thank Rebecca for an unforgettable trip!
