As intern season ramps up, meet our 3rd new team member to join us this month!
Hey everyone! My name’s Hailey Bossert, though I’m often referred to as Hay, Hails, HB, or Hboss, but I’m always open to new nicknames (as long as they’re not too embarrassing). I am a San Diego native and have lived here for the past 20 years of my life. I did, however, decide to leave the West Coast (aka best coast) in order to attend college in Virginia. In the fall I will be a big, bad junior at Lynchburg College where for the past two years I have called my home. I am a Communication Studies major with a Public Relations emphasis and a double minor in Spanish and International Relations. You may be asking yourself what I want to do with all of that, but as of now it is still a mystery to me.
I have been raised as a sports fanatic and have tried every sport out there at least once (though I’ve had my fair share of ballet classes as well). You may find that I am tad bit competitive, but since I have two younger brothers, it’s kind of hard not to be. I play varsity lacrosse at Lynchburg and love everything about the game. When I’m not on the lacrosse field I enjoy listening to all types of music, watching a good rom-com and of course, chilling with the homies. Some of my favorite things include puppies, the color orange, and spicy foods. My hidden talents are rapping to Nicki Minaj songs and taking long naps at all hours of the day. I also have a secret obsession for every aspect of the film industry thanks to a film class I took in high school.
I am a part of an organization at Lynchburg called the Bonner Leader Program which focuses on serving the community. One of my biggest passions is helping people from various backgrounds and walks of life. I can date my passion all the way back to my early years serving as a girl scout. I just love the feeling of knowing that you have made an impact on someone’s life, no matter how big or small.
Sustainability to me means doing the little things like unplugging appliances when they aren’t in use or carrying a reusable water bottle around just to help reduce our carbon footprint. People don’t realize how all the little things can add up to make a true difference in our world. I think that if people continue to take that extra (small) step to be sustainable and environmentally conscious, that it will help to make this world a much better place to live in.[ssba]
