Currently, I am a Junior majored in Environmental Studies with a focus in Policy, Planning, and Law at SUNY-College of Environmental Science & Forestry. I know, a mouth-full; a mouth-full, that constantly has me wondering how I got here. Growing up, I have been fortunate enough to be constantly surrounded by the natural world. Whether I was home playing in the ocean or spending weeks on end at my Grandpa's Cabin in the Northern Adirondacks, I owe it all to my experiences as young girl, being immersed in nature and realizing how little I am in the grand scheme of planet earth. My interests are rooted in the power of storytelling and helping people understand that all you can do is try your best for the planet and the people around you. For as long as you are trying your best, you are doing just fine. I also love to learn, but I love even more to apply what I learn to my reality in order to help and make a difference, even if it is a small one. When I graduate from ESF I want to apply for Graduate school and continue aiming for a more sustainable lifestyle. I hope to one day be able to grow my own food and even share it with my surrounding community through an accessible CSA or a farm-to-table restaurant.
