Hi everyone! I’m Abi Genser and I’m a rising junior at Cornell University. I’m majoring in International Agriculture and Rural development with a minor in Environmental, Energy, and Resource Economics. I am originally from NYC, but have mostly grown up in Connecticut. My interest in sustainability sparked my junior year of high school and has grown exponentially since then. I took a gap year after highschool and that is when my passion for fighting climate change really took off. When I’m not worrying about the world catching on fire I am usually hanging out with my friends and taking my dog for a beach walk.
My favorite part of being a lead was learning about the sustainability and historical contexts of products from every industry, and seeing how everyone was passionate about something different. I loved helping college students find their voice by sharing their unique perspective in their writing. I am so thankful for the support of Diego, Yvonne, and the other SAL’s in my cohort!
