Environmental Science major, Global Sustainability minor
I’ve always been interested in how people can make their lives more sustainable in different areas in their lives, from food to transportation. Even the littlest change can make a huge difference! While I love sharing my ideas and philosophies on tweaks one can make to make their lives more sustainable, I never want to pressure or force anyone. The best way to go about sharing these concepts is bringing to light how fun or awesome they are. There are so many ways to go about making changes, each with their own way of meeting specific needs and I love learning about these new techniques and technologies.

Biology Major and Environmental Science
My passion for sustainability came from taking a minute to just visualize the world that we live in. I realized that it is important to take care of an entity that flourishes with life and beauty. I want to conserve this world for our future generations, so that they can enjoy it like we are doing now.

Up until last year, I never really knew why people would live sustainability or even what living sustainably means. If someone asked me to define sustainability, I probably would have said, “It’s something about global warming and trees or something, right?” I took a class called Environmental Systems and Societies last year as part of my IB Diploma in high school. I learned all about the problems our society faces related to the environment, all the way from overpopulation to climate change. I now know each individual can create a small change, so I try my best to make a difference every day. I’m passionate about sustainability because we can make a difference if we work together. If we get a group of people to each create a small change, we can turn those small changes into a big change!
The earth is such an amazing place, and I feel it is our responsibility to take care of it. Luckily, there are so many ways we can include little acts of sustainability into our daily lifestyle
Environmental Science major and Government major

Class of 2017
Class of 2019
While I am still technically undecided, I am a prospective Environmental Thought and Practice and Commerce double major! I am passionate about sustainability because I believe that by pursuing a more sustainable existence, we will in effect be treating the multitude of global issues in a more holistic way. I want to be part of the first generation that attempts to clean up the mess humans have created rather than pass it on for someone else to deal with.
