The overall goal of my internship was to support ongoing projects for the Small-Scale Fishery Resource and Collaboration Hub (SSF Hub). My main responsibilities were to assist with social media management, design policy action toolkits, and to create an interview highlight. To help with social media promotion, I created many templates for the SSF Hub’s Instagram account and used them to advertise the photo contest held in honor of the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture 2022. I also designed a policy action toolkit based on the SSF Hub’s women and gender webinar, and made templates for future toolkits. My third main project was to interview a younger fisherman from Costa Rica about his experience at the United Nations Oceans Conference in Portugal and post the interview as an article on the SSF Hub website. Through this internship, I had the opportunity to practice my graphic design skills as well as my skills in collaborating with a team. This experience has solidified my desire to pursue future academic studies in ecology and to pursue a career in ecological conservation.
