I always knew I wanted to be involved and politics and major in Political Science. My interest in Environmental Studies came later. In December 2014, I went to see Naomi Klein speak on campus about her book This Changes Everything. After listening to her lecture about the links between climate change, policy, and capitalism, I was hooked. I went on to take an introductory Environmental Studies class and declared the major shortly thereafter. I’ve so enjoyed my time with the Environmental Studies program and the Nelson Institute, as a whole world of knowledge has opened up to me in an area I was all but ignorant. Being involved in the environmental community on campus, primarily with the ASM Sustainability Committee and Sustainability Council, has occupied my time on campus with work that felt deeply meaningful to me.
