Get to Know Lilli Posted on June 14, 2017 by Grounded Strategies Share this post This is me enjoying the breathtaking Haleakala Crater in Maui! My name is Lilli Kashef Hamadani, and I am excited to begin my summer internship here at GTECH. I am most recently from Southern California but describe myself as being from nowhere due to constant moving. Throughout my life, I always had a strong pull towards the outdoors and all the creatures that came with it (this ranged from horses to dolphins to snails). This interest has driven me throughout my undergraduate degree at San Francisco State, where I majored in Political Science and minored in Anthropology – the interaction between what has been and what we could do has always fascinated me. Taking my love for the environment and social issues with me, I embarked on my journey to Carnegie Mellon University. I have now completed the first year of my Master of Science in Public Policy and Management, and am eager to apply what I have learned so far to my position at GTECH. Over the course of my internship, I will be working on the SuROI initiative, along with writing policy and position papers. I may even attempt to help build a Green Playce or two. As my second official day comes to a close, I can say that I am more than enthused to dig deeper into the projects going on here. I plan to spend my first week diving in, asking too many questions, and reading just about every report I can get my hands on. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer brings!
