I was born and raised in South Africa. I am a Junior at the University of Pennsylvania majoring in Environmental Management and Sustainability, with minors in Fine Arts and Urban Studies. I am interested in the ways in which these three subjects are interconnected and can be used to make positive change for the environment. I worked with the Penn Program for Environmental Humanities and Data Refuge in the Summer to develop a podcast on the refinery in South Philadelphia and became interested in the lack of attention Philadelphia has paid to rising water levels and air pollution data. I am excited to continue and develop this research.
