Hi y’all! My name is Yalda and I’m currently a rising third year at UCSB. I grew up in the Bay Area close to wetland areas such as Shoreline which made me really passionate about wetlands studies. My background in journalism helped me decide that I wanted to minor in Professional Writing with Science Communication. I’m not sure what exactly I want to do post-grad, but something along the lines of environmental information communication sounds like a plan. I also hope to live the most carbon neutral life in the future as possible (van life here I come!). In my free time, I love running, doing yoga, spending time outdoors, and around my friends and family. I'm really looking forward to my time here at Voiz!
