Marissa Brakes, 2015 Sealaska Intern

“Interning at Sealaska has been a wonderful experience. I have learned so much about what Sealaska is and most importantly what we stand for. I have gained many tools and skills that I can take away and use in a variety of jobs and settings in the future. I am very excited about all of the connections and networking that I have been exposed to. I recommend applying to the internship to anyone who is looking to develop new skills, meet new people, and learn to work in a professional setting.”
