Intern-al Review: Alyson Jefferson

As a DC native, Alyson puts her community first while pursing a Bachelor's degree in African Studies at Oberlin College.

Where are you from?

I was born in Washington DC. I am a DC native and live in the Tacoma neighborhood.

What degree are you currently pursuing and what college are you attending?

I am a rising sophomore at Oberlin College. I am pursuing a degree in politics and possibly a minor in African studies.

What would you like to do with your degree?

I am excited to learn about how the PMO team contributes to the many programs that DCSEU offers. I also hope to understand how effective this organization is in reducing the energy usage of DC residents.

Why did you choose to intern with VEIC/DCSEU?

I chose to intern with DCSEU because I wanted to gain professional skills and learn more about energy efficiency. I wanted to be a part of a group that focused on helping the environment and that gives back to the community.

How do you hope to use your experience here in your future pursuits?

In my future career as an attorney I hope to combat social justice issues. Using my experience here, I aspire to learn more about energy and environmental issues in order to aid me in my future endeavors.

What is your craziest skill?

My craziest skill is that I can horseback ride. I have ridden horses for about eight years and have trained others in horseback riding as well.
