Graduated: Spring 2017

The arctic is a very dynamic and important region. Each year, the problems in the arctic seem to grow. I really enjoy problem solving and the arctic region is something I have been interested in since I was a very young age. The arctic studies minor is a great opportunity offered at the University of Washington. I hope to connect with like-minded people who are equally interested in not only learning more about the arctic region, but helping in solving the problems that are present there. I learned about the arctic minor option at my orientation at the University of Washington. I knew that I was already interested in the environmental studies track offered at the Jackson School and came to the conclusion that an arctic studies minor would be a great compliment to that. After meeting with an advisor and meeting Dr. Fabbi, I knew that I was making the right choice.
