Fall 2013 EcoReps!
Lizzie grew up in Columbia, SC catching fireflies, climbing magnolia trees, and making costumes out of what some would consider “trash”. Her work with Keep the Midlands Beautiful helped foster her love of the environment through litter prevention, recycling and beautification. Often this involved jumping into local creeks and kayaking around the three rivers to remove bits of trash from trees. She now loves NYC as someone planning on pursuing the 3-2 dual degree program in Environmental Science and Civil & Environmental Engineering.
Caroline hails from the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee where she spent many years roaming the wilderness and finding new ways to pretend she went to Hogwarts. Now, while at Barnard, she spends her time exploring a completely different type of wilderness and maintains the hope that her Hogwarts letter is just a few years late…She can be seen picking up bottles and holding onto paper in order to recycle them later and turning off any unnecessary lights. She also harbors a very deep love for the ocean and anything within it and aspires to someday live on a sailboat, but that will have to wait a few years.
Emma grew up in Lexington, KY, a short drive away from rolling bluegrass hills and picket-fenced horse farms. Despite the surrounding green areas, Lexington is known to have a high carbon footprint, and Emma worked during high school to raise awareness and promote sustainability in her area. She loved buying and preparing local food back home, and is ecstatic to have a farmer’s market so close here in the city. In her spare time she talks about Italy to anyone who will listen, colors and crafts, obsesses over Harry Potter, and, obviously, watches New Girl.
Kate was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, where she developed her love for the environment through many backyard projects and working at the local farmer’s market. She has been raising chickens for over 10 years at her home, and has recently picked up the odd hobby of bee-keeping. While not playing with her beloved insects, she can always be found eating apples at the farmer’s markets, playing tennis, going to music festivals, and at summer camps of all kind!
Nicole Mabry came to Barnard from the far away land of New Orleans. She is taking the reigns of the frequent Eco Reps potlucks, as she has fostered a deep love for the creation of vegan and gluten free foodstuffs. Nicole is a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies student and spends her spare time in the Well Woman office spreading her wealth of knowledge to the masses of Barnard students.
