Alex is our new social media intern, and as with all Postgreen Interns, she will be making occasional blog appearances. Somehow between school and appearances at Lincoln Center (seriously, she is singing there sometime soon), she has found time to help us keep our ever growing noise machine organized and active. I’ll let her say the rest.
Hey there, Postgreen followers. I’m Alex Wittchen, the newest addition to the Postgreen team in the position of Social Media Intern, meaning I will be working with Nic to ensure that you are able to easily follow our every move. Before I begin inundating your Facebook feed with Postgreen updates (you’re welcome!), I think it’s only fair to tell you a bit about myself.
I’ve always worn various hats at any given time in my life, and I attribute this to not being content to just settle on one passion. After graduating from my performing arts high school, I went to college to pursue a degree in Music Theatre. When I found that limiting (and jobless), I left and transferred to Temple University. Here, after a brief foray into Biology, I settled on being a history major with the intention of one day going to law school. As I near the end of my college career, – I finish my classes in December, and begin law school next September – I find myself thinking of other classes I still want to take. I love to learn.
Music theatre, biology, history… I told you I wasn’t content to settle on just one passion. So how did I get to Postgreen? Easy, my interest in sustainability. I have to blame this interest on my sister, Sam, and mother. They own their own sustainability consulting firm in the region, iSpring Associates. Watching them build their business has been an incredible experience, and has taught me about our responsibility to be more mindful of the resources we’re using on a daily basis. When it comes to our use of resources, we are facing an urgent crisis. We use more than we can possibly hope to replenish. This poses a great threat to all of us living here. Fortunately, I thrive on challenges. I see the sustainability sector as one big challenge waiting for me, and a few others, to come and tackle it.
Lucky for me, Sam happens to have lots of friends. Within that, she has lots of friends who are also doing cool things. One of these friends is Nic Darling. When Nic advertised for a Social Media Intern, I thought, “This is meant to be.” Lo and behold, I happened upon Nic at an ultimate frisbee game, and we set the wheels in motion that have led me to here.
In addition to making it easier for you to stalk Chad and Nic (again, you’re welcome!), I’ll be researching cool new products and projects for my fellow sustainability geeks. Feel free to leave a comment about something you’d like to find out more about, and I’ll try to see that your curiosity is sated. Until next time.
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
