screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-3-29-48-pmI am majoring in Civil & Environmental Engineering. One of the goals I have working with Waste Right is to improve the quality of disposal and awareness among our community. I want to instill a consciousness and passion for environmental awareness and correct waste management, emphasizing the need to abide by legal laws set by our city while also influencing all others we interact with. I strive to achieve environmental sustainability throughout all aspects of my life and learn with others in correlation with the natural environment and its processes.
