The CEC is delighted to welcome Cesar Muro as our summer programs intern. For the next several weeks, Cesar will be helping to plan and organize the Greater Houston Environmental Summit on August 4, 2017; the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on January 24 & 25, 2018; and Earth Day Houston, among other things. You may have already met Cesar, as he has attended several CEC events in the past.
Cesar is a rising senior at the University of Houston majoring in Biology and minoring in Architecture. He works part-time as a veterinary technician and hopes to go to veterinary school after graduating. In the future, he would like to divide his time assisting in conservation research projects, helping wildlife, and working as a veterinarian at an animal shelter. His diverse background–he spent several years in Lima, Peru– instilled an interest in traveling, the arts, human rights, and environmental issues like protecting endangered species.
At the University of Houston, he held a leadership position at UNICEF at UH for two years and helped spread awareness, create events, and fundraise for children in need. In the upcoming school year, he looks forward to work with the pre-veterinary student association as the Event Coordinator, the Metropolitan Volunteer Program as an Environmental and Sustainability Co-chair, and University of Houston Office of Sustainability as a volunteer.
Cesar welcomes introductions from anyone working with wildlife and animal conservation projects.
CEC is grateful to the Shell Nonprofit Internship Program, administered by Volunteer Houston, for allowing us to welcome Cesar this summer.
