Tess      
The best part of my job is obvious – I get to save the planet! In 40 years, when my kids ask me what I did to help save the earth, I’ll be able to reply that I actually did something. I get to work on projects that will hopefully become solutions to climate change, which is kind of a big deal! I get to have a lasting impact on the environment for my children and future generations, in some ways it’s like being a modern day superhero.
