18 May Coming Back Home
My name is Malik Robinson I am currently a rising senior at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. I am currently majoring in Agriculture and Environmental systems with a concentration in Sustainable Land Management. The location that I will be conducting my internship is actually my hometown! As a GIS Specialist/Lands Planner I will be at George Washington Memorial Parkway in Arlington, Virginia/Washington D.C. I am excited about this experience because this will give me an opportunity to show my parents what I do and other family members who live close by also. Furthermore this will give me an opportunity to learn much more about GIS and the trees of the parkway. My fascination of surveying land and trees began from my past internship at Yellowstone National Park where I learned how to tell the age of trees and how to plant more in selected areas where they are needed. I am very excited to get this summer started!
