As a person who has grown up in an increasingly worsening environment, my passion for environmental justice issues started at a young age and has led me to the academic and civic path I’m on today. I have a strong sense of connection to the Green Bay area and feel that my passion for a healthy and safe living environment for all could be used to greatly improve our home. Locally, I am involved in the Environmental Affairs Committee of the Student Government Organization on campus to provide our students a voice within our campus legislation, particularly when it comes to environmental issues. I strongly believe that everyone deserves a chance to live in a clean and healthy environment, and I plan to help give people the power to make that a reality.
