I am Erika, a 21-year-old fourth year Psychology and Social Behavior major from Torrance, CA.

I believe that as a college student, we have a unique opportunity to learn information outside the traditional classroom environment. I am and have been actively involved in other groups on campus. I was a Student Parent Orientation Program Staffer for two years and am currently in the Army Reserves Officer Training Corps, Dreamers Advocate Program, and am a Student Housing Advisor and Marketing Assistant at the Housing Administrative Services office. With my different involvements, it seemed that I was missing a key component: sustainability. I wanted to learn about the topic and this program seemed to be a hands-on way to learn about the topic with the added bonus of studying abroad. I am very excited to be a part of this team and have the unique opportunity to learn extensively about sustainability.
