For the past four years, GreenBox has teamed up with the Triskeles program: a foundation dedicated to creating a conscious, sustainable world across all generations. Through Triskeles, high school students are invited to intern with qualifying organizations – those where innovative human beings are committed to fostering a “green” today and even greener tomorrow.
We’re so proud to be one of them.
For the month of July, we’ve been lucky enough to be joined by our intern, Marita, a 14 year old realistic fiction connoisseur from the Bronx. While she might be a little shy, Marita is a heck of a writer… so naturally, we asked her to share her feelings on our favorite topic: pizza.
We love what she came up with, and thought you would, too:
Growing up, I spent every summer in Massachusetts with my cousins, and nothing felt better than gathering the family together in our little kitchen to make homemade pizzas. We made several different pies, from thin crust, my favorite, to the combo. Everybody had a job to do, whether it was spreading the cheese or rolling the dough. That hour we spent in the kitchen created some of the best memories.
Smelling the pizza and waiting for it to finish baking stirred up excitement and anticipation in the house. When it was finally ready, the time and effort we spent in to making the pies was long gone as we took apart the pizza slice by slice. Sitting there, enjoying the fact that pizza brought us together, I stopped looked at my pizza and asked, “What would I do without you?”
Today, we say thank you to Marita – for her hard work, her passion, and love for pizza pie. Here’s to Triskeles for bringing us together, and for letting us be a part of their vision. We couldn’t be more grateful.
