What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? I have always been interested in the environment from a young age, from collecting snails, and visiting the local garden in Washington, D.C., to watching nature documentaries. My childhood fostered my love for the environment, but when I grew up I realized that there are serious issues that threaten what I have grown to love. It takes a community to combat problems like climate change and environmental injustice, and I want to contribute to this fight.

What would you say (or do you say) to other students about CESP and the Nelson Institute? CESP is an amazing opportunity to build, grow, and learn about the intersections between the environment and community.

Something few people know about you: I play guitar, I am a vegetarian, and I love going to concerts!
