Dakota B.: "I am a senior majoring in chemical engineering (sustainability and environmental engineering track) and pursuing a certificate in Spanish studies. I have been a member of The Garden at UMBC since my first year here, and I have been a co-president since 2018. My interest in gardening and everything nature-related started from a young age. Now I look forward to continuing my passion and making progress towards a more sustainable UMBC as an Eco-Ambassador!"
Dakota's work is focused on bringing together a collaborative coalition of UMBC student organizations that have an interest in the environment.
