Hi everyone! My name is Gonzalo Alvarez, and I’m a sophomore at the University of Michigan majoring in Business Administration and Political Science. I was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and raised in Newaygo, Michigan. I am very passionate about espresso, specifically the art of producing a beverage that touches the soul with every sip. Honestly, if you want to win my heart, give me some bean water with almond milk. Throughout my life, I’ve always admired nature, except the winter. Growing up in a conservative county has shown me how little people care about the environment and how little they know about climate change. My ambition for environmental change began in high school when I became a vegetarian upon doing some research. Now, I make it my mission to hold companies accountable through the power of people and education. I am excited to be a part of a community that desires necessary change.
