Undergraduate Public Research Intern, My Climate Story
2022 - 2023
Maria Villarreal is a first-year student from Tampico, Mexico. She intends to major in Environmental Studies at the College of Arts and Sciences. Her current research interests engage with environmental conservation and how we can mobilize a cultural shift to implement the necessary policies to create a sustainable and environmentally just society. For her, this project is an opportunity to contribute to environmental conservation and listen to others’ climate stories.
Maria says: I joined the My Climate Story team because it’s an opportunity to contribute to environmental conservation and listen to others’ climate stories. Additionally, I wanted to work with Philadelphia’s high schools because education is key to creating well-rounded students that can be proactive and protect our ecosystems in their adult life.
