CfS Fellowship Program
The Center for Sustainability’s Fellowship Program
The creation of the Center for Sustainability’s fellowship program addresses the growing want of students to be more involved in sustainability through direct experience, advocacy, and education. CfS fellows focus on projects that interest them that affect the sustainability needs of the university. Through this program students develop professional skills that will help them promote sustainability in their future careers.
Our student fellows:
Natalia is a Senior Business Management Major with an emphasis on hotel and restaurant management. She is originally from Barranquilla, Colombia and raised in Cobb County Georgia. Natalia’s interest range from making ceramic pottery to marching band. Natalia reached out to CFS to expand her knowledge on sustainability and advocate for a more sustainable way of living after living in France for 5 months. She recalls her time in France as an awakening to what a country can do for the environment and it’s citizens when it decides to allocate its resources to achieve a healthier and greener culture. She hopes to get into a Corporate Sustainability Masters Program to further her education and make a change in big corporations.
Maddie is a senior Communication Studies major at Georgia Southern. With a family background heavily involved in the National Park Service and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Maddie adopted a passion for environmentalism at a young age. In fact, she chose to attend GSU after discovering the Center for Sustainability here! After her freshman year of college, she studied abroad in the Himalayas (Uttarakhand, India) with the Department of Geology and Geography to witness and learn more about the relationship between people and the environment. Now, in her major classes, she chooses to study environmental rhetoric and the importance of constructing conservation messages for various audiences, those locally or internationally. She hopes to use her degree in community development to educate the public on sustainable efforts that will help their communities flourish from the inside out.
I am a freshman studying Biology and I am dedicated to Sustainability because my passion lies in growing high quality and nutritious food for people. I believe in a society where food is grown to benefit the Earth itself and the people, and sustainable agriculture is the key to that.
Amanda (Aurora) Evans
Aurora is a Junior Biology major at Georgia Southern. She is originally from New Rochelle, NY. She was interested in sustainability from spending quality time on the farm with her grandparents in Jamaica. From there, she found interest in sustainable living and has begun the process of converting to minimalism and zero waste living. Her goal is to one day become a conservation scientist. She loves to inform others of positive solutions to protect the environment. She is happy to be a part of the CfS team here at Georgia Southern.
