Corinne is from Saint Louis, Missouri and a first-year student at Grinnell College. She hasn’t declared a major yet, but plans to go into a STEM field. She loves running and currently participates in the cross country team at Grinnell. Her experiences running in nature helped spark her interest in sustainability, alongside her love of birds. She has been inspired by relatives and friends to grow native plants to benefit species like monarch butterflies, and plans to learn more about conservation methods in the future. Corinne initially joined Project Green simply to educate herself on environmental issues, but found the challenges very engaging and enjoyed using her creativity and art to make a difference.
