Elli is a third year environmental studies major at Wellesley College, with particular interests in environmental and social justice aspects of sustainable development. She conducted research and organized community outreach to protect local ecosystems for the past three summers as an intern with Kwiaht in the San Juan Islands. She is a leading member of Wellesley Energy and Environmental Defense. Elli is currently abroad investigating the invisibility of urban recyclers in Delhi, Dakar, and Buenos Aires.

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.
