Kenyon College

  • Biology

One of my main goals is to decolonize and diversify the field of conservation biology and biology in general. I want to focus on the intersections between cultural anthropology and biology in order to learn about and implement a wide range of conservation practices. My goal is to work on bettering the living conditions of low-income BIPOC communities, specifically migrant communities like my own in the San Fernando Valley in California. Outside of classwork, I enjoy swimming and working on nail art.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
