Environmental Science

Evelyn is a third year student at UCLA pursuing a major in Environmental Science and a minor in Literature and the Environment. She is incredibly passionate about the societal impacts of climate change, and firmly believes that effective writing is the solution to achieving the cultural groundswell and political momentum to change ourselves in the face of a precarious climate. Devoted to honesty and integrity, Evelyn understands that while climate change can seem far removed to those who are not on the frontlines, in reality, it is a phenomenon that leaves non untouched. Her capacity to draw connections between the social and political issues facing communities grounds her understanding of current environmental problems and empowers her to utilize storytelling and the written word to humanize our climate crisis. In her free time, Evelyn enjoys blogging, sipping oat milk lattes, and exchanging stories.
