Sydney Kleiman’s Summer Internship with Purdue Extension

Sydney Kleiman (Junior/Horticulture Production and Marketing) is interning for the Purdue Extension Office in Warrick County this summer, learning about Extension opportunities on the county level. The most rewarding part of the experience is seeing her work benefit the youth in Warrick County, teaching them aspects of agriculture that they may not have experienced otherwise. She found it difficult to work in a trial-and-error setting. “It is not always guaranteed that your ideas are going to work out the way that you envision them, but it remains important to learn as you go and take the advice of others.” The piece of advice she wants to give to students considering an internship: “Go in with an open mind and be willing to learn.”
