The Adventures of the Best Intern on Earth

If the word "internship" brings to mind scenes of coffee-fetching and copy-making amidst a maze of cubicles, think again. At the Sierra Club, the Best Internship on Earth means a summer spent exploring the outdoors.  

This year's Best Intern is Kokei Otosi, a soon-to-be sophomore at NYU. Acting as an Outdoors Youth Ambassador, she's already marched with the Club's Puerto Rico chapter at New York City's Puerto Rican Day Parade, attended an event on the White House lawn for Michelle Obama's Let's Move Outside program, and joined Oakland High School's Environmental Science Academy for some whitewater rafting on California's American River.

"The summer's been a blast," says Otosi, who has embraced the opportunity to explore new places and meet new people, even if it means a bit of discomfort from time to time: "The water in the American River is freezing!" Otosi says with a smile, "but I forgive the Sierra Club."

Watch her most recent video, above, and stay tuned for more of her outdoor adventures.
