My name is Amanda and I’m a junior at UConn returning for my second year as a Sustainability Intern. My love for nature serves as inspiration for my desire to create positive environmental change. But the climate crisis is daunting and all-encompassing; losing hope is easy amid the constant flux of confusing news. That’s why I want to combat misinformation and discouragement by telling accurate, solutions-oriented stories about the planet as an environmental studies and journalism major. This year, I hope to help the OS connect with the student body in a meaningful way and work with our community to create lasting change on campus and beyond.


Amanda is currently studying abroad in Australia.
