Solving the world’s environmental problems like pollution, climate change, and dwindling natural resources takes a curious mind and a creative scientific approach. Taking your environmental science studies abroad means the opportunity to learn how soils can be decontaminated from farm products in Ghana, test the effects of carbon on rainwater in a Costa Rican rainforest, or model how arctic sea ice is changing in response to a warming planet in Iceland

As an aspiring environmental engineer and a student of color, I want to revamp current civil systems for rural and developing communities through renewable energy, green infrastructure, sustainable materials, and better water, electric, and broadband networks. I want to redefine engineering to be not only about projects but more about the people they serve.

Standing in front of a class and teaching in Spanish for an hour was a great way to improve my language level and increase my confidence. I also gained more clarity on the roles and responsibilities of a teacher. To experience the dynamics of a classroom was a goal I was able to achieve through my internship abroad.
