Working with the MUSD Energy Ambassador Program
Written by: Melissa Munguia
Working with the MUSD Energy Ambassador Program has taught me many new things, including leadership and communication skills, and how to work together as a team. It has been a fun journey so far because I have learned a lot of new information that I did not know before. Although I have not been able to do many consultations, I have learned that it is important to learn how to talk to adults and people in general.
During team meetings we learned that as a group we come up with many new strategies and that together as a whole, we are able to brainstorm and develop our ideas. Working as a team brings about new ways in which we can improve the program. It is important for us to get to know each other and develop relationships amongst each other. In addition, I had the opportunity to go to a community outreach event and even though there was not many people, I enjoyed being able to work with my supervisor and teammates.
Overall, the MUSD energy ambassador program has been a great opportunity for me because I got to learn how to work independently and keep myself on task. I learned to regularly keep up with my work and check my emails. Most importantly, I have learned that cooperating with my coworkers and communicating with them will help me in my future. The program is a wonderful program that I am very fortunate to be a part of.
