Monterey Bay Aquarium Intern Experience

Got to interview a 15-year-old aquarium volunteer who has a shunt because of a brain tumor he had when he was ten. It was so cool to be able to say, “Oh, I have one too!” It’s not often that connection is made, especially randomly. His parents were so happy to meet someone who has grown up successfully with a shunt and it’s the first time I was able to help someone just by relating to them in this way. I never had that growing up, and it just warmed my whole being to be able to provide that for someone else. This internship has truly taught me many life lessons already. I am so grateful for this experience.

I have a class in a building that’s not even on the map…

- “Ummm where is the back building?”

- “It burned down in 1987.”
