My name is Petra Holtze and I am incredibly excited to join the Clean Energy Economy Minnesota team as their Communications and Marketing Intern beginning this summer!
As a Strategic Communication - Journalism major at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities minoring in Social Justice, I am passionate about finding creative ways to share unique stories that may be under- or misrepresented. I am looking forward to diving into such stories within the clean energy industry in order to better blend the connection between communication, policy, and business.
I am excited to learn more about the benefits and current policy building happening within the clean energy sector. I am already so impressed with the community of people involved in clean energy, I can’t wait to build deep connections with individuals and organizations across the Twin Cities and beyond.
Outside of work, you may find me hiking and hammocking with friends, singing in Vocal U A Cappella at UMN, perfecting my latte art as a barista at Penny’s coffee, or continuing my search for the best muffin (a favorite bakery item of mine) in the Twin Cities.
Clean Energy Economy Minnesota and their work both compels and inspires me as a future communication professional passionate about promoting beneficial public developments on a local and global scale. Being a part of this team is a fantastic opportunity and I look forward to meeting the people, learning the facts, and uncovering the stories involved with CEEM for the extent of my internship!
