Hi everyone! My name is Rachel Nemeth and I am a rising junior at Boston College studying Bioinformatics and plan on minoring in Finance. Growing up on Long Island I have always felt very connected to nature and wildlife. I come from a family that values the natural beauty around us. I enjoy running, biking, kayaking, hiking and snorkeling with my friends and family! My freshman year at BC I took a class called The Global Implications of Climate Change which combined both the natural science and social science aspects of climate change and the environmental steps that need to be made in order to prevent irreversible damage. This opened my eyes and sparked my interest in sustainability.
