My name is Julie and I can not wait for this adventure to begin! I just finished my first year at Drake and I am a double major in Sustainability & Resilience and Rhetoric, Media, & Social Change. I am interested in all types of sustainability, including social, developmental, and environmental. While in country, Ben Rohr and I will be furthering the research of previous Drake students to evaluate water quality in the village of Kikandwa, a community that experiences water-borne illnesses. I am most looking forward to experiencing nature in Uganda through safari and Murchison Falls, as well as getting to know my fellow Drake students better.
