  • Conservation Biology
  • Creative Writing

Despite being from a busy city I grew up wanting to experience the environment and help the natural world thrive. As I got older I got into creative writing and wildlife sciences and developed a joy for teaching others as much as I could. I enjoy reading, horseback riding, aerial dance, and sports photography. In the future, I would like to partake in a career that will make use of my artistic talents, appreciation for nature, and love of learning new things. I’m generally interested in predatory animals due to watching loads of documentaries about them when I was younger, but I wouldn’t mind working with other animals as well. I hope to broaden my knowledge and experiences with humans, animals, and their environments to properly teach others the importance of conservation.

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.
