Eva Malis is studying Environmental Science, with minors in forestry and creative writing. She is an outreach coordinator for Students Against Fracking, a blog editor for the California Student Sustainability Coalition, and Blog Staff for the Student Environmental Resource Center at her campus. During her freshman year of college, Eva won a grant from The Green Initiative Fund to install recycling bins in her school’s dorm rooms, and is continuing to apply for more funding to further the growth of residential recycling. She volunteers with SEED (Students for Environmental Energy Development) at La Escuelita Elementary in Oakland to spread her environmental passion to young people. Eva has interned with Environment California to combat fracking, Boston Scientific to explore biotechnology, and the Ecology Group of Bandelier National Monument as a field intern to assess post-fire regeneration. Eva is an alumna of the Global Environment Theme House, and is most interested in wildlife conservation, communicating sustainability, and environmental education.
