As a Project Lead in my community’s energy efficiency/housing program, Co-Chair of SevenGen and ICE Board Member, I want to help equip and share my journey with another young person looking to expand their participation in the clean energy sector. I’ve always had some pretty incredible mentors and being a mentor is my way of paying it forward.
