Grades of Green Alumni & Student at UC Berkeley

Nicole Catangay is a first-year at UC Berkeley studying Environmental Science and Public Health. She is interested in the impact of natural and built environments as they relate to human health inequities. Her passion for the environment stems from her experience as a past Student Project Leader for Grades of Green campaigns in which she focused on textile waste and microplastics in waste streams. She believes that working with students will pave the way to a more sustainable future because they provide creative and fresh perspectives. Including students of all backgrounds in the conversation can promote intersectionality within environmental work.
