What forces, events, or inﬂuences in your life inspired you to become a conservationist? When I was younger my family often went hiking and camping in the many National Parks we visited on our cross-country road trips, and so my love of nature and traveling was born. As I grew older I became increasingly interested in the intricate relationship between society and the environment, and my education as an Engineering Studies major was a great way to combine my technical interests with my desire help other people. Like many great people have stated, I believe that climate change is the greatest moral issue of our time and I want to do my part to make the world a better place. Naturally, being a conservationist is a ﬁtting solution and directly in line with my values.
