3. More Frosting, Please: @em_nuelle
Emma’s spending her summer working in at a bakery in Salem, Oregon. Now that’s a pretty sweet gig.

Haley’s spending her summer in North Dakota for a paid internship with The Nature Conservancy. Her role as part of the Leaders for Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF) focuses on doing conservation work on nature preserves. She’s seen bison, prairie dogs, ancient fossils … and a ton of bugs that we don’t have in the Pacific Northwest.
