Celina M. Scott-Buechler
Growing up in India and Mexico, Celina observed from a young age how human-driven ecological and climate changes affected vulnerable populations, especially poor coastal communities. Eager to address this inequity, Celina crafted and is pursuing an independent major on issues of marine conservation science and coastal sustainability studies. She is also actively engaged with environmental justice efforts on campus and serves on the board of a national educational nonprofit, the Telluride Association. She plans to pursue graduate studies in marine conservation and coastal social inequality, which will prepare her for work in environmental nonprofits and/or public agencies.
