I am in my second year of law school planning to focus on courses related to environmental and property law. I grew up all over the US in both city and more rural settings but growing up I traveled with my family a lot and when we were younger our parents would take us camping to a variety of state and national parks which sparked my love of the outdoors. From growing up in a variety of different environments I have found a love for rural landscapes that often don't get as much attention as big cities or large parks. My Indian heritage has inspired my passion for the environment as my mother taught me the cultural values of living in-sync with the planet and protecting it for continued life on earth. I am also inspired to take action for the environment and the indigenous communities that protect it after reading the book Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. It taught me without the environment, we are nothing. After graduation I plan to work as an environmental and property lawyer. While I'm not sure what exact path I'll take directly after graduation, in the long-term I hope to create a non-profit or NGO that works on helping people receive conservation easements and protect their land.
