My name is Andrea and I am a third year Sociology/International Studies double major.

In high school I developed my passion for environmental science and social justice by taking environmental science and in my senior year, AP environmental science. Eventually over the summer I was given the opportunity to conduct research on invasive species and caterpillars in New Orleans due to being highly involved in the environmentally friendly aspects of my high school. In college I have not been given as much of an opportunity to be as involved so I am excited to once more be able conduct research in a beautiful new country, Costa Rica.
