  • Name: Jenna Truong
  • Position: Assistant Director
  • Year: Sophomore
  • Major: Environmental Studies
  • Sustainability is important to me because growing up, I had no connections to nature or the world around me. Once I found all of these new beautiful things by going outside and taking chances, I realized that they may not always last forever. Sustainability is the chance to save beautiful creatures and places, and something I enjoy increasing awareness about so I can help ensure there is a future to dream about.
  • Fun Fact: I have six older brothers ( I am the only girl of 7 and the youngest)!
