Environmental Sciences Major

I recently switched my major from Biological Sciences to Environmental Science. I am still figuring out what my future will hold for the rest of my time at Northwestern University and beyond; however, I am deeply interested in learning more about ocean ecosystems and conservation, as well as climate change (and finding ways for our world to become a more sustainable home). I enjoy playing my violin and am learning my way around the steelpan (although I currently do not have access to one ☹).
