“This is my first year interning with BCe2 and I absolutely love it. I think it is a fantastic opportunity for youngsters like myself to engage with society to generate meaningful solutions. I was born in Mauritius, a small island on the other side of the globe, but South Bend definitely feels like a second home to me.
My main responsibility this summer is with the Deep Dive team. We are a group of 3 interns focusing on the real time monitoring of rain gardens. We are developing a system of sensors and communication devices to record and quantify the performance of our rain gardens.
Some of my key highlights from the summer are engaging with the community around Bowman Creek, meeting several members of the city’s leadership, and most importantly learning from all my peer interns, who all have different experiences and backgrounds.”
