My name is Ameen Asbahi and I’m working as the Maine Organizing and Research Intern for the fall semester. I’m at Bates College, majoring in Environmental Studies and enjoying all Maine has to offer. Right now I’m trying to learn guitar and debating whether or not getting a cat in college is a good idea. One of my greatest passions is experiencing nature, and I aspire to majorly contribute to preserving our planet as my career. I’m truly excited to be working for Community Action Works, empowering communities to create a better future for themselves at the local level. Doing this work feels like I’m helping to foster change in people’s lives, which is really rewarding.
