EMU Student Wins “Best Internship on Earth”


While most students were heading home after graduation, Joaquin Sosa was preparing for the “best internship on Earth.”

Sosa, a rising senior and digital media and photography major at Eastern Mennonite University, was selected out of 99 applicants to become the outdoor youth ambassador for the Sierra Club.

For the internship, Sosa will travel around the country for 10 weeks (June – August, 2012) with the Sierra Club’s Mission Outdoors program. He will learn different ways the Sierra Club is helping young people experience the outdoors, film these adventures, and host a video blog on youth in the outdoors.

The blog will be posted on the Sierra Club website in June.

To be selected, Sosa submitted a 60-90 second video on why he loves the outdoors and saw his video voted into the top-10 via social media (Facebook, Twitter).

Founded in 1892, the Sierra Club is one of the oldest environmental organizations in the U.S. The club works to protect communities, wild places and the planet itself, according to its website.
