Eunice Lee

BA, Environmental Studies


Eunice is a B.A student in Environmental Studies at the University of Washington’s College of the Environment. Growing up as a Third Culture Kid, she was exposed to a diverse range of people, environments, and cultures. This cultivated her interest in learning about the intersection of sustainable development and environmental justice. In the summer of 2018, Eunice participated in a study abroad program in Greenland. She gained first-hand experience in seeing how climate change causes tangible environmental changes and environmental injustice. She saw the Arctic as a place where the involvement of indigenous communities is key for sustainable development, environmental protection, and cultural preservation. Eunice hopes to work on bridging sustainable development together with societal related facets to minimize environmental injustice.
