Hi Guys! My name is David Gjerde and I’m a first year Economics major at UCSB. I am from the East Bay Area (Pleasanton) and I'm currently studying in Isla Vista, California. Some of my family is from Norway where I learned to love nature and where I began to become more interested in sustainability. In Santa Barbara, I am always inspired by my environmentally conscious peers and I feel hopeful about our generation's capability for producing change. I look forward to working with my fellow Californian's but also with like-minded peers around the world! I'm excited to be on this journey with you all.
