My internship in Franklin was a unique, interdisciplinary, and memorable experience filled with one-on-one attention and feedback. It taught me the challenges and rewards of bringing abstract concepts from environmentalism and research into the real world of city planning and marketing. Perhaps most importantly, I learned the scale of the potential in each of us to transform our world for the better.
