PowerOptions has recently hired two interns for the summer. Please join us in welcoming Awa Sane-Darboe and Mirna Garza to our energy team!
Awa Sane-Darboe has joined PowerOptions this summer as our Regulatory and Policy Analyst intern. During her internship, Awa is focusing on researching, tracking, and reporting on environmental and energy regulations and policies at the regional and state levels. She is also diving deep into the new federal funding channels to identify potential opportunities for our Members.
Her passion for climate mitigation and climate resilience led to her studies at Northeastern University, where she is currently pursuing her Master’s in Environmental Policy, Climate change, and Sustainability. Her undergraduate experience includes Law and International Relations at SOAS, University of London where she graduated with First Class Honors.
When Awa isn’t working, you can find her watching a movie, or at a food market!
