Making it Count

As of this morning, I only have three more days left here at my internship in Ireland. These next three days will be quite busy, however, because I have a lot to wrap up in order to get results for my capstone paper. I will hopefully be getting some more face-to-face time with the religious leaders of some of the minority faith groups in the area. The main objective behind my research has been to effectively engage religious communities in behavioral change that leads to energy conservation within the homes of the community members. The program I have been helping with has been facing some challenges though and to be honest, these challenges and the difficulties the partner organizations have been facing are going to make for a very interesting (and rewarding) research paper. Although I am saddened by the fact that the program is a struggling a bit, I am also excited because it will allow me to present my findings and offer recommendations that could potentially help this program and other similar programs in the future. I haven’t been able to do as much as I was hoping due to the struggles the program has dealt with but at the same time, the struggles have offered me an even better approach to my paper. I am sincerely looking forward to how my paper will turn out and I hope that it makes a difference to someone in the future.
