Name: Marcus Hardy

Internship Site: North Hudson Community Action Corporation

Career Interests: I am interested in engineering because I have always been good at math and I feel that as our population continues to grow and we use up more resources, I find it necessary that certain things should be made/reinvented so that it is more environmentally friendly and we are giving more back to the Earth and taking less.

Favorite Quote: “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears” — Les Brown. Fear is a huge thing that has surrounded me and will surround me throughout my life and it will try its best to prevent me from reaching my dreams. But this quote reminds me that in order for me to live my dreams, I have to overcome fear. It reminds me that I can easily hate life if I become afraid to do what makes me great. It gets me through hard times because when I am unsatisfied with my situations, it makes me take a step back and see what’s holding me back from being happy.
