Intern Q&A: Caroline Rotenstreich

July 15, 2020

We're so appreciative of the hard work of our talented interns, so we're thrilled to introduce them in our summer Intern Q&A series. Today, we're getting to know intern Caroline Rotenstreich.

Name:Caroline Rotenstreich

Where You’re From:San Francisco 

Where You’re Quarantining:San Francisco 

How do you practice sustainability?

I practice sustainability daily by growing my own produce as well as attending the Fort Mason Sunday Farmers' Market. I make an effort to always come prepared with reusable bags as well as glass jars to reduce waste. Also, I have always been on either the giving or receiving end of hand-me-down clothing. Whenever possible, I try to support small businesses in my community.

What are your future career aspirations?

I am interested in continuing to explore startup culture as well as the broader Venture Capital/Social Impact Fund space.

Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

My biggest inspiration is my grandmother. She combined her two passions, Art History and Sign Language, into a long-lasting career as a docent for the hearing impaired at the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco. My grandmother made her life's passion a career, and her commitment to her work will forever inspire me.

Pick a song to describe yourself and explain why you chose it:

My favorite song is “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers, because my parents played it nonstop during my childhood. The song has always reminded me of how much I value and rely upon being surrounded by positive, well-wishing people. Every morning, they help energize me to have a productive, uplifting day. I am so fortunate to be a part of the all-female TTM team. I am profoundly inspired by their mission, confidence, determination, and support for one another.
