Luna

Luna Peralta '23
She/her/hers
Prospective Environmental Science Major; Media and Film Minor

"Hello my name is Luna and I go by She/Her pronouns. I have always been interested in protecting the environment because in my eyes it is our most precious resource. Along with the environment, I am interested in environmental justice because coming from a low socio-economic background and being a minority I personally know not everyone is seen as equal. Being a part of the Workplace Program team, I hope to educate offices around campus about what it means to be fully sustainable."
