My name is Leilani Myers. I grew up on St. Croix in the USVI and in central California. I also live on Maui, Hawaii part-time. Growing up, I was exposed to nature through traveling to all 50 states and going to most all of the national parks in the United States. Because of this, I have always felt a deep connection and responsibility to the environment and when coming to college at Muhlenberg, I was excited to take classes related to sustainability. I am a biology major and sustainability studies minor at Muhlenberg and next year I will be attending University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Throughout the course of my last semester as a Sustainability Studies minor at Muhlenberg College, I will be researching the problem of plastic pollution and how we can find sustainable solutions for the disposal of plastics.
