Meet Kassey Trahanas, serving with the Mobile Baykeeper AmeriCorps program. She serves in the Strategic Watershed Awareness and Monitoring Program (SWAMP).
What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was motivated to join AmeriCorps because I am passionate about the environment and Alabama's coastal ecosystems. Being able to serve the country as an AmeriCorps member is an honor.
What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to become more knowledgeable and familiar with coastal communities. I also hope to gain a deeper understanding for community outreach and environmental stewardship.
What will your service focus on for the 2018-2019 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on educating students and community members on the importance of keeping Mobile Bay clean.
What are your plans after AmeriCorps? After AmeriCorps, I want to enroll in a Masters program focusing on environmental protection. I plan to launch a career in fish and wildlife enforcement or serve in the United States Coast Guard.
Thank you for your service Kassey!
