Johanna is a third year Economics and Political science double major at Colorado State University. Her career goal is to practice environmental law. She is the founder of the CSU Mock Trial Team, and the co-editor of the Honors Program Literary Magazine. Johanna works at CSU's Restoration Ecology Lab, researching shrub species that can tolerate high zinc concentrations and be used to restore mining sites. She also works on a project with Dr. Michelle Betsill in the Political Science department, “Mapping Emissions Trading Systems for Greenhouse Gases,” that evaluates the effectiveness of “cap and trade” as a policy instrument. In summer 2008 she will intern at the Environmental Law Institute in Washington, DC.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
