Hannah Valentine | SDSU Graduate Seeking an Environmentally-Based Role

This is funny I am asked this question because lately this concept has been circulating my thoughts. I recently graduated with a degree in Geology, but my passion for the environment ranges anywhere from water conservation to climate change activism. We are living in a crucial time where environmental change is essential to our future lives. I’ve developed a commitment to be a part of this change.

I want to be remembered as a woman who successfully, and whole-heartedly, made a difference for the Earth for years to come. Read more>>

If I could impact the system of care for these woman I truly believe the next generations will see a brighter future. Read more>>
