About the Millennium Fellow

I am a student at Lynn University majoring in Environmental Sciences. I joined the Social Impact Club in Spring 2018 semester because I was interested in joining a club that cared about making a purposeful impact which translated into joining Ambassador Corps through Lynn where I spent my summer in Belize interning for REDD+, (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation).
