Abbie Molodetz '19
Abby Molodetz ’20 spent the summer interning at the Ecotarium in Worcester, Massachusetts thanks in part to a grant she received from COLSA’s donor-supported SOAR fund.
Abbie Molodetz: I was an intern in the wildlife department of the Ecotarium in Worcester Mass. I was responsible for aiding in taking care of the animals there. The animals are ambassador animals that teach children about the environment and wildlife.
Molodetz: I wanted the internship because I am a Wildlife and Conservation Biology major. The position allowed me to learn about the husbandry of many animals and gave me experience on teaching children about animals.
Molodetz: I am most proud of the way the animals are treated at the Ecotarium. I am so glad that I was taught how to take care of them and work with them by using positive reinforcement.
Molodetz: How to live in a new place by myself.
Molodetz: I have learned a lot of valuable information and gained great experience.
Molodetz: I was granted the SOAR scholarship which allowed me to pay for rent, transportation, and food, that allowed me to take the internship.
Molodetz: Use Handshake! It was how I found this internship.
