    Q: How did you find out about New Energy Economy?
    A: I found out about the New Energy Economy from doing research online.

    Q: Why do you want to work with New Energy Economy?
    A: I would like to work with New Energy Economy because it deals with what I consider to be the most important challenge the whole world faces today, that is climate change. Furthermore, the organization also seeks to address the second most important issue, that is social inequality and injustice. These issues are interlinked and I am convinced that the only way to solve both issues is to view them as equally affecting each other. This way of viewing the issue calls for bold solutions, which New Energy Economy seeks to devise and implement.

    I strongly believe in the vision and the work the organization carries out, and I would therefore like to take part in it and to contribute in my own small way. Furthermore, I wish to learn more about the ideas underpinning the approach of the organization, and the processes involved in implementing the solutions conceived by this approach.

    Finally, I hope to bring this knowledge with me in my current and future own work, which I hope can contribute to the collective efforts aimed at overcoming challenges to our climate and to social equality and justice worldwide.

    Q: In what area are you particularly strong? In what area are you particularly challenged?
    A: I encompass comprehensive knowledge on environmental issues, environmental politics, as well as the history of social movements seeking to promote social and environmental development. I also have strong research skills, and am competent in both qualitative and quantitative research methods.

    I also have strong interpersonal skills and believe I would be able to successfully undertake tasks related to communication, media, advocacy, and devising campaign strategies.

    I have no experience with research and writing legislation and regulations. I also have little knowledge of the particular stakeholders and issues in Santa Fe. I suspect this will be a challenge with regards to carrying out the job responsibilities in a more efficient way. However, I am a fast learner and believe I will be able to quickly gain an adequate understanding of relevant legislative and regulatory aspects in Santa Fe, as well as of the particular environmental challenges different stakeholders face there, and the power dynamics between them.

    Q: If you would like three things to come out of your internship what would they be?

    Deeper insight into the methods and effects of environmental/community activism.
    Knowledge that I could use to build a case study for my research dissertation.

    Q: Please describe a personal experience that made you want to get involved in environmental/community activism?
    A: One learning experience that has made me want to get involved in environmental/community activism has taken place during my studies in conflict resolution and international development, whereby I learned about the often detrimental impact of natural resource distribution and management on peoples lives. These impacts often entail land dispossession, violence and conflict and often are a result of the economic greed of small powerful elites. The impacts also entail environmental degradation, which affects us all. Therefore, although I am not directly impacted by natural resource conflicts, I am indirectly impacted due to environmental degradation. Furthermore, I emphasize and feel compelled to help those who are robbed of their land and resources, and/or who are exposed to environmental danger, violence and conflict, as well as injustice.

    Q: In what ways have you practiced leadership, or how do you imagine utilizing your leadership skills in the next 1-2 years?
    A: I have practiced leadership roles during my volunteer experiences and during my studies. First, I have engaged in several volunteer activities, including working as a research assistant for a project aimed at encountering human sex trafficking in the Netherlands, and as an assistant at two homeless shelters; one in Amsterdam and one in Oslo. These experiences required that I supported people during a journey that was challenging and traumatic. In supporting these people to my best ability, it was essential to encourage and motivate people to seek ways to improve their own lives with the tools and opportunities that were available to them. Furthermore, this entailed efforts to convince people to improve their own conditions, as well as to demonstrate possible ways and guiding them in doing so, including writing CVs and applying for jobs.

    During my studies I have also undertaken several group projects, and in some of these projects I have taken a leadership role. This has involved coordinating tasks, ensuring that we meet the deadline, and ensuring that every member both feels included and actively participates in the project.

    Finally, I during my studies I have participated in negotiations simulating conflict situations. During these simulations I was elected as a representative of the group and had to represent the interests and goals of the entire team, which I also actively participated in devising.

    Q: Please tell us about your interest in this internship. How do you imagine that it may benefit you and the community/ies you live and work in?
    A: I am interested in this internship, as I am very passionate about investigating and undertaking effective means for solving social and environmental issues. These goals underpin my career aspirations, as well as some of my personal aspirations in life.

    For my master dissertation at the university of Edinburgh I have decided to write about the environmental crisis and it is my hope that I can connect to my dissertation the work I perhaps will undertake as part of an internship at the New Energy Economy.

    The benefits I hope to bring about to the communities I will live and work in are twofold. First, I hope to undertake actions (such as organizing and participating in workshops) that can bring about immediate benefits to communities. And second, I hope to conduct research (for instance with indigenous people on the Navajo nation) that can uncover methods for achieving social and environmental development, as well as to tackle the environmental crisis.

    Q: Please take a minute to describe yourself.
    A: I would describe myself as a dynamic and forward thinking postgraduate student who is highly interested in promoting environmental and social justice in as well as sustainable development. I am optimistic, analytical and methodical and like to combine a variety of extracurricular activities with my studies, including volunteer work.

    I would further describe myself as a friendly and collaborative person. I have strong interpersonal skills, including active listening, negotiation and problem-solving, which I have developed during my volunteer experiences as well as my studies in psychology (BA), conflict resolution (MA) and international development (MSc). I enjoy engaging in teamwork, especially those embedded in multicultural environments.

    Finally, I am a very curious and dedicated person, and am willing to invest a lot of time and energy in thinking about how to solve societal issues, especially those pertaining to social and environmental justice and conflict resolution.
