Nirali Shah New England Aquarium - (Nirali Shah)

"I truly feel that anyone interested in working with animals should consider this internship. It also would be extremely beneficial for people who are planning on going into the education field, as it helps sharpen public speaking and presentation skills. In order to get the position one has to demonstrate a fair knowledge of the subject as well as a passion for education. It is definitely a tiring job and one must be committed to it 100%. In order to interact with people all day, we absolutely have to be enthusiastic, awake, and on top of our game. Be ready to answer questions, some of which are easy but many of which are incredibly obscure. And most importantly, be able to say, "I don't know, but I would love to find out for you."
