Introducing our First Intern

Abraham Menaldo our first intern!

For the first time since the founding of TheCompensators*, we have an intern! We are very pleased to have someone so motivated and supportive and for us to provide a comprehensive insight into the world of compensation and emission trading.

Abraham Menaldo, a recent graduate from Austin College, has interned with TheCompensators* since October and will continue working together with us until next year and support our goals of compensation and a better emissions trading scheme.

After his college graduation in May, Abraham was selected as one of 75 participants for the 2012-2013 Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX). The fellowship supported by the American Congress and the German Bundestag includes a year-long experience of training, study, and an internship in Germany. For his internship, Abraham decided to join TheCompensators*.

With a double major in Economics and German and a minor in Environmental Studies, as well as, previous experience interning with the Economic Commission for Latin America, where his tasks included informing policy makers and other citizens about environmental issues and researching on how trade and tourism could be affected by climate change, interning with TheCompensators* was, “a perfect fit” for him.

Through TheCompensators*, according to Abraham, he was able to find the perfect organization to fit all of his interests. As soon as he learned of our organization, he knew he had to apply for the position. “Working here has helped me put into practice what I learned in college and further, it has put my German proficiency to the test.” Being part of TheCompensators*, he states, has given me the great opportunity to be part of an organization that directly fights to improve climate policies in Europe.

“I have had a great experience so far, it is definitely a unique organization to work for” Abraham remarks. “One day I might help plan one of our campaigns, the next day, I might read the most recent report that talks about changes in environmental policy in Europe, and then another day, I test my creativity by decorating gift boxes to sell at our stand for a Christmas Market. Everyday there is definitely something motivating to do.
