Although my educational pursuits have brought me to Humboldt State in Arcata, CA, my heart remains in my hometown of Long Beach, CA. Back home, I enjoy spending my time with my friends and family (including my dog Roscoe); they are my most valued supporters. Even though they aren't always so easily compliant, they usually take part in my household attempts to strive for sustainability. In addition to pushing for a greener home, I have enjoyed volunteering in local clean-ups, at school-organized events, with Habitat for Humanity's OC branch, as well as with a variation of other organization groups. With an instinctive care for the environment, I hope to situate myself with a career in sustainability.
