Kelly Archer

Passionate about: I am a student at UC Berkeley studying Math and Environmental Engineering. In Chacaraseca, Nicaragua my team and I will assist local primary schools by constructing gardens, teaching workshops and initiating farming projects. This experience will provide me with a broader bank of knowledge that will assist me in creating innovative and perceptive ideas regarding environmental protection and sustainable food systems. I can see this trip reinforcing my passion for teaching, problem solving, and organic farming.
