Hello! My name is Willow and I am 20 years old and am a sophomore at Georgetown University. My passion for environmental sustainability and conservation is what gets me out of bed every morning and I am happiest when I’m outside!! I am creating my own major called Humanistic Ecology and focuses on discovering ecological-inspired, locally derived solutions to the global cultural flaws that have led to the climate crisis. It is grounded in reciprocity & relationality and has three major themes: rational sustainable alternatives to transform how we interact with the natural world, shifting value systems to those that align with mutualistic flourishing of the land & people rather than infinite profit & growth, and addressing environmental & social justice issues of the past, fixing those of the present, and in general deconstructing the cultural & structural systems of violence that allow those with privilege to maintain power.
I am hoping to do research in South America this spring on Indigenous communities' perspectives & opinions on how developed countries should go about confronting the climate crisis. Specifically, I am hoping to research Indigenous communities' opinions on how developed countries should implement Traditional Ecological Knowledge in the fight against climate change. Throughout this time, I am also hoping to learn more about permaculture, cultural traditions, medicinal herbs, and foraging.
I am outgoing, bubbly, and love to go on adventures. I also love to hike, do yoga, and learn about anything and everything! I am a very hard worker with a can-do attitude and put 110% into everything I do. I am also relentlessly optimistic, mostly a blessing but sometimes a curse :)
Yo hablo español y je parle français. I can get by in both languages (and of course, English), but am not fluent (but am hoping to be soon!).
The past two summers I have lived in Kaua'i, HI and worked on a regenerative agriculture farm & composting facility, which has been an amazing experience. I have knowledge about permaculture, composting, building infrastructure, and Indigenous philosophy that I hope to share, and I hope to learn lots from you as well!

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
I am very knowledgeable about environmental issues, permaculture, composting, and switching to sustainable alternatives/off-the-grid living. I am studying Humanistic Ecology at Georgetown University, where I hope to answer the question of how can humanity as a whole reconnect with the natural world from which we have alienated ourselves.
I have my SCUBA certification, WFR certification, as well as experience gardening, cooking, and teaching yoga (I do not have my certification but my sister is a yoga teacher and I have learned a lot from her! I also am very interested in getting my certification if anyone knows of any teacher trainings in the jungle :)). I am a master of organization and I am very active and can help with more laborious projects!
I have a lot of experience babysitting kids of all ages! I have nannied for 2 families for 4 months, have babysat since I was 12, and have a brother that's 7 years younger that I grew up taking care of! I really like taking kids into the outdoors and showing them how to be curious and love the world :).
I also love being in nature as well as meeting new people, hearing about their lives, and having deep discussions on the nature of society and our place in the world.
I believe having gratitude and practicing reciprocity are the most important things in life. Looking forward to the adventures that come and the memories I make! :)
