I’m Carmen and I’m from Chicago. I love to read, play soccer, and thrift with my friends. I am interested in the intersections between culture and the environment, and how different underserved communities can be connected to share conservation and ecological knowledge. I also want to find ways to integrate science writing, policy, and community work into what I do. One of my greatest goals is to do wildlife conservation research in Australia, where I lived as a child! I love traveling and am excited to see how different places tackle environmental issues and in what ways I can help people of color gain a voice in the conservation field.

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.
