I am a fourth year International Development student at the University of Waterloo. I am currently on an 8 month placement (Sept. 2017 - Apr. 2018) in Ghana with an environmental non-governmental organization called A Rocha. A Rocha focuses on contributing to the effective management of the earth’s resources through sustainable and innovative actions. As a Students Without Borders volunteer for the Uniterra program, I am participating in research and advocacy, policy making, and outreach and education within nearby schools and communities.
