Dear GRRN Members:

Thank you for the opportunity to circulate my work experience and
education 
acquired thus far.

Currently I am a graduate student at Monterey Institute of International 
Studies.  My degree of focus is International Environmental Policy
Studies.  
My language of concentration is Japanese.  To date I've lived there a
total 
of five years.  The experience was wonderful and I am looking forward to 
experiencing other cultures and languages.

My area of interest is currently with waste minimization.  I've had an 
internship with the Monterey County office in their Solid Waste
Department.  
I would be interested in working with an organization or company that is 
helping to reduce the amount of packaging found in consumer products 
before they reach the market as well as eco-labelling for organic foods 
as well as for genetically modified foods.

My summer vacation begins May 13th, 2001 and lasts until August.  Classes

begin in early September.

Although I have had exposure to French and Spanish in High School and 
undergrad respectively, I have an advanced level of understanding in 
Japanese.

Any information that you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Please find below a pasted copy of my resume.  It can be faxed, mailed or

emailed upon request.  Please feel free to contact me directly via my
email 
address: Laurenteen@yahoo.com.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance.

Sincerely,


Laurenteen
