My name is Layla and I'm the new Supporter Mobilization Fellow at Greenpeace and I'm here to answer any and all questions about Greenwire!! I'm super excited to have the opportunity to get to know all of you here and to assist you in anything you need help with, so please don't hesitate to contact me.
I recently graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) where I majored in Environmental Studies and Political Science. After learning about the many environmental issues and cases of environmental injustices that occur almost everywhere in America I became deeply interested in taking action to improve the quality of our environment and to reduce the level of anthropogenic climate change that causes many of the world's oceans, cities and landscapes to become unhealthy and polluted. I'm extremely passionate about nature and being outdoors and I believe that we all have a role to play in ensuring that our planet remains healthy and beautiful. There is so much that you can do to help out with this, just contact me if you want to know more!
I have had the opportunity to intern with several organizations including Greenpeace, The Wilderness Society, Environment Maryland and Fund for the Public Interest. Each of these opportunities has offered me new skills and insights into the many issues that occur within our environment and the steps that we can take to reduce our negative impact.
When I'm not in the office I'm probably playing with my dog Rico (who could probably play all day), at the movies or playing basketball.
