It’s been exactly a month since graduation and life’s still a whirlwind of events happening each day. After a nice 10-day trip to visit relatives and tour NY & Canada, it was straight back to Chi-town to start on my internship with Conscious Planet Media.
So much has been packed into the last two weeks that i’ve been on the job. Had the chance to film everything from high school students doing green collar work, to the Chicago Mayor Daley at the unveiling of the nation’s first organic rooftop garden, to adventures at the Green City Market in Lincoln Park! Also just finished editing Conscious Living TV’s latest episode on green luxury travel, which was fun, although i have to admit that it’s hard to watch footage of other people getting massages in a spa; It makes my back suddenly crave for one too!
It’s been an awesome opportunity to meet people involved in the green community as well. I realize it truly takes a network of people, from the educators to the policy-makers to the business owners and media, fighting for the same cause to make a big impact. I’m definitely picking up healthier eating habits and various little things i can do to live consciously. I love getting to put my media production skills to meaningful use! Go green! :)
