What is your major? Conservation biology and environmental studies

Expected graduation: May 2024

What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? I grew up on a small farm in rural Wisconsin, and I was able to go outside anytime I wanted to explore the outdoors. Every summer I was also able to hike and camp at state parks with my family learning about the diversity within nature. These experiences allowed me to learn about nature and a love of the environment grew.
