Meet Shu Li, our newest graphic design intern. A student of Drexel University, she is on co-op with us for the next six months. Shu came to the United States from Chengdu, China, the biggest city in Southwest China and the home of the giant panda. She moved here for a bachelor’s degree in communications in 2013 with little experience speaking English or living alone. Overcoming these challenges, she found her real passion, graphic design, and transferred to the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design her sophomore year.
HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT MILKCRATE?
I heard about MilkCrate from the Drexel Co-op online database. The company and job description seemed very interesting to me.
WHAT DREW YOU TO WANT TO GET INVOLVED?
The company website. The whole vibe (color, graphics and text) is very comfortable and welcoming. Most importantly, the section with the team headshots and introductions impressed me. I got the feeling I would be working in a warm, efficient environment and would be meeting awesome people from a variety of professional fields.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE GREEN BUSINESSES or ACTIVITIES?
I love going to Luke’s Lobster. The lobster rolls are so delicious, and they have dairy, gluten, and vegan friendly options available for most of their menu. Also, I love collecting used bottles, bags, and packages to re-use for DIYs or other stuff.
WHAT IMPACT DO YOU THINK MILKCRATE FOR COMMUNITIES CAN HAVE ON AN ORGANIZATION?
The points-earning system is a really good incentive to get people involved in green activities. It is also useful in measuring not only a community’s consciousness about sustainability but also how much effort they put towards sustainable living.
