My name is Angela. I’m from Clearwater, FL currently working towards a Bachelor in Environmental Policy. Born in California and raised in Florida, I’m a coast to coast girl. Regularly, I enjoy hiking and kayaking along the coast of Florida, but mostly, I enjoy long walks on the beach and getting caught in the rain (Florida thunderstorms are a gas). I grew up in suburbs feeling a disconnect towards nature. As I grew up, the disconnect grew larger until I started hiking and backpacking. Since then, I’ve been learning more about the environment by taking classes and also enjoying the outdoors. I’m interested in the sustainability of water which will be exciting as we are working with the Army Corps of Engineers at various lakes. I consider each day is a new learning experience and I’m sure that the next few months will greatly add to my experiences.
