Hello! My name is Beca McCarthy and I am very excited to be Kompost Kid’s 2019 Sustainability Media Intern! I am a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee pursuing my bachelor’s degree in global studies, with a focus in environmental security. I plan to continue my studies toward a master’s degree in natural resource management next year.
My favorite things are kayaking, wildlife, and Wisconsin Summers. Someday I hope to work for the National Parks to protect our nation’s purest intrinsic resources. I am very eager to work on large-scale waste reduction and community education through this internship. The mission to create a zero-waste street festival is ambitious and exciting!
