Green Impact allowed me to work with some of the key drivers behind the University's sustainability movement which was a rewarding and eye-opening experience. It expanded my knowledge on implementing sustainability especially on multiple scales. I really enjoyed working with my team, Bio 21 who were
not only enthusiastic to learn together, but also from each other. Overall, it was a unique two way learning opportunity I know I can learn more from.
