Hi everyone! My name is Annika and I’m joining the UW Sustainability team as the communications intern. I’m currently a freshman in Engineering, hoping to also explore writing along the way. I grew up with a green thumb, where I developed a passion for nurturing plants and admiring the beauty of nature. Once I worked on a science project about honey bees, I realized that the self-sustainability of plants and organisms fascinates me to no end. From there, I knew I wanted to pursue environmental stewardship to greater depths.
My other interests include learning about biotechnology, taking care of plants, and café hopping with my friends. I’m also involved in local journalism and media groups, so I can practice storytelling to make the community more tight-knit. I’m looking forward to learning more about how students, faculty, and you can act locally here at the UW to impact the environment.
