Hello! My name is Brooke Bowser, and I am currently a Junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am earning degrees in Environmental Sciences, Life Sciences Communications, and a Certificate in Sustainability.
I grew up in rural Wisconsin on a small family sheep farm. In a home surrounded by sprawling oak trees and rolling hills, it was no surprise that I soon developed a deep connection with nature. This passion was further fueled by my family’s summer vacations to various National Parks and natural wonders across the country. One of my favorite memories is sitting alone in Zion National Park on a late summer evening. Across the canyon, lightning flickered and thundering clouds rolled in gradually. This striking experience as a reminder that nature's beauty can never be eclipsed by anything constructed by humans.
While I first fell in love with the trees, I soon came to realize that my passion for protecting our Earth is about so much more—it is about the people. Clean air, clean water, and clean land are basic human rights, and until these rights are recognized by all, I will dedicate myself to this movement.
After graduation, I hope to continue writing as a means for environmental and social activism. I have found my home at the intersection of science, art, storytelling, and environmental protection, and I look forward to utilizing my passions to continue moving our planet forward.
