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.

Statesboro

Jade
I’m from Richmond Hill, Ga, but grew up in Virginia and have also lived in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and North Carolina. I am a sophomore with a biology major, chemistry minor, and a concentration in environmental sustainability. When I was in 7th grade, I watched a documentary about where our food comes from and how it was affecting our environment. From there, my interest in sustainability grew and developed into a passion of mine. I believe that we should be giving back to our planet in order for it to continue providing us with resources and a home. We only have one earth so if we want our future generations to be able to live well, we must live in a way that allows for this.


Sofia
I was born in Portugal and moved to Georgia when I was 10. Growing up in America has opened my eyes to many different ways of thinking and living, including veganism. I became vegan around two years ago and have been passionate about animal rights and how the meat industry severely impacts the planet we live in ever since. Veganism has also introduced me to all other aspects of sustainability, and my goal is now to educate myself and others by making it easy to understand and more accessible to everyone. I hope joining the CfS will help me with that.

Kelly
My name is Kelly Patterson and I’m a sophomore Biology major at Georgia Southern University. Sustainability, to me, is important because it is a way to maintain our resources in hopes for a better future and there are many opportunities to do so.

Celeste Chapman
Celeste is a Freshmen Theatre major, minoring in writing at the Armstrong Campus of Georgia Southern University. Her first passion is writing as she has been previously published in the New York Times and on the TEDx YouTube channel. Her other passion is attempting to create a positive change throughout the world and society. The CFS Fellowship program sparked this second passion because through learning about how to save the environment and living more sustainable, she wants to use what she learns to one day educate the world.
