Kevin is studying a Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University.  He joined the VACorps Program in July 2018 and participated in a conservation internship at an environmental education trust.

“I chose CT for my internship because I wanted to learn about conservation in South Africa. I chose to do an internship because it was required by my university program. The thing I loved the most about South Africa was meeting all the different people at my site. I learned that I can be a person to cross-cultural boundaries in a positive manner and can make a difference. I will never forget the people that I worked with at my internship site. The best part of living in CT was getting to meet so many different people from many backgrounds. I will miss these interactions the most. I stayed in South Africa for 3 months which was just about the right amount of time.”
