Congratulations to our two College of the Environment students recognized in the 2021 Husky 100!

The Husky 100 actively connect what happens inside and outside of the classroom and apply what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for the future. Through their passion, leadership and commitment, these students inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience.

Included in this year’s Husky 100 are Angie Lai from Program on the Environment and Abby Rogerson from Marine and Environmental Affairs.

B.A., Program on the Environment

“In my time at UW, my studies and experiences have pointed me towards a lifelong pursuit of environmental justice. Through the process of learning (and unlearning), I’ve gained a better understanding of the world we live in and how I want the world to be. I hope to do my part in moving us towards a more equitable, understanding, and just society, and I’m grateful for the people I’ve met along the way that have helped me get here.”

“Though I came to UW intending to study marine affairs, my experiences here revealed the potential food holds to build more resilient communities and inspired me to pursue a career in food justice. In particular, expanding food recovery on campus and running the UW Pantry made clear how food can shape our relationships to the Earth, self, and one another. Thanks to friends and mentors met at UW and beyond, I’ve learned any step taken humbly and guided by my values is a step in the right direction.”
