Hi guys! I'm the new Your Back Yard summer intern and I'd love to take the opportunity to introduce myself...

Just a quick hello!

Published by Lowri Robbins on

Hi everyone! My name is Lowri and I am joining the Your Back Yard team as a summer intern, over the months of July and August!

Just to introduce myself… I have recently graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a First Class Honors in Biomedical Science. Although I love my degree and the challenges it presents, my desire to study biomedicine stemmed from my motivation to help people! Although I may not be following the typical science route, I feel I’ve really found my calling in applying my science background to help build a better life and a better environment for people. My main focus is sustainability and helping communities to adapt to the fast-changing landscape surrounding renewable energy schemes and sustainable practices!

Hopefully, even though my time at Your Back Yard will be short and sweet, I can help to push some sustainable initiatives which not only benefit the environment but also benefit the people in the community.

Now that the end of covid is in sight, I look forward to meeting you all and becoming familiar with the projects! I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting the walking netball team, and I’m looking forward to meeting the Bramley Walking Wanderers (especially since I’ve been told they are extra fierce when it comes to the beautiful game).

In addition, please feel free to email me with any queries or recommendations. If you feel there is something that your community is lacking, or you simply want more information please reach out to me at lowri@yourbackyard.org.uk.

We also have FaceBook and Twitter accounts so make sure you’re checking those for updates about what projects we have going on in your local area.

I hope you are all keeping safe, and I look forward to speaking with you!
