About the Millennium Fellow
Adare Taylor is a senior Earth and Environmental Science, Studio Art, and Sociology triple major at Furman University in Greenville, SC. She is planning to apply to law school this cycle to start next year and is primarily interested in environmental and international law. Adare is from outside of Philadelphia and has always been drawn to diversity and culture. Beginning with Spanish language exchanges in highs chool leading to studying race relations and spending a semester submersed in Hawaiian culture, she is an advocate for tolerance and inclusion. Partnered with her love of the natural environment and concern for climate, Adare spent the last summer researching Environmental Justice and how large corporations address it (or not) in relation to their sustainability goals. She hopes to combine her art skills with her knowledge to use her senior art portfolio to educate and raise money for those hungry in the Greenville area and address the problem of food waste.
