Why I’m marching: I’m marching because climate change is the existential problem of our day. Iowa can play a key role in mitigating climate change through sequestering carbon in our soil. Connected to that, we really need to reduce nitrogen run off from our farms into the water.
About me: I grew up near the Iowa Great Lakes. In high school, I got an internship at Iowa Lakeside Lab, helping monitor water quality in the Lakes. I received my undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Iowa State University, and I’m now working on my PhD in biochemistry. I’ve got a black belt in judo, but hope I don’t need that on the March.
Follow me on the March:
