What are your majors? English and environmental studies

Expected graduation: May 2021

What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? My high school environmental studies class inspired my interest in the environment. I had never taken a class like it before and it taught me a lot about the world and what is going on in the world that I didn’t know before. I enjoyed learning about the issues of today’s world and how people are trying to solve them.

What would you say (or do you say) to other students about CESP and the Nelson Institute? CESP is made of a friendly, diverse group of people both in background and interest but we all come together with the common interests in the environment and community. CESP gives you a great opportunity to learn about and get involved in new things while also giving you the opportunity to express your creativity and have fun through class projects that allow you to connect with other CESPers and the community.

Something few people know about you: I have been volunteering at Slow Food-UW since my freshman year at UW-Madison. Slow Food is a great place to meet new, friendly people and gain some really great experiences working in a kitchen, meal planning, and working with other student organizations to create fun food events.
