Erin is a senior at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, studying Natural Resources and Environmental Science with a concentration in Human Dimensions of the Environment. Erin was a 2016 Project Green Challenge Finalist, which she credits for sparking her voice and passion for environmental activism. Erin has worked with human rights issues since she was in high school, and has experience leading fellow teens to be affective and inspired leaders. Erin hopes to use her education to work in the non-profit sector and to be a grassroots organizer for environmental education and activism. When Erin isn’t working on environmental issues, she’s probably off spending most of her money on Fair Trade Chocolate, fall candles, and tacos!
