What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? All my best memories growing up were outside; spending springs on the toddler swing under the big oak tree, picking mulberries and dandelions from the yard for my mom, and making stinky stews with all the neighbor kids. It really instilled a love of nature and community in me and since then I have sought out ways to get involved and further help people and the environment.
What would you say (or do you say) to other students about CESP and the Nelson Institute? CESP is a super supportive community that really helps keep you grounded while you go through school. It has helped me feel more connected to other environmental students and be prepared for greater opportunities outside of academics.
Something few people know about you: I absolutely hate watermelon-flavored Jolly Ranchers, and most artificial watermelon candy!
