Having practically grown up on the beach, a summer without the ocean will be an invited challenge for Alana. A practicing vegan for three years, Alana’s interests lie in environmental awareness and sustainability and she feels there is no better way to learn about the outdoors than getting out there and rolling around in it! Hiking and canoeing are two of her favorite outdoor activities, but she is always up for adventuring in any setting. Alana is fortunate enough to have spent four years at UMass Amherst where there is a constant supply of opportunities to get outside and people to join her!
Though she will miss her family TERRIBLY (Mom, are you reading this?) Alana is excited to spend a summer in the backcountry and hopes to go to Grad school abroad, join the Peace Corps, and save the world when she returns (not necessarily in that order)! With degrees in psychology and political science, Alana hopes to work in environmental politics in a South or Central American country in the future (though she will admit the Spanish is going to need a little practice).
