Bridget Abraham recently began pursuing a bachelor of science in sustainability at Arizona State University. She became interested in sustainability during her time at Chandler High School, where she was Student Body President and involved in all Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes. During Abraham’s junior year, she enrolled in AP Environmental Science, and through a partnership between ASU and Chandler High, she earned School of Sustainability credit for this class.
Abraham answered questions for us about how this experience in high school led her to choosing a path in sustainability, and what sustainability means to her.
Question: What did you like about the ASU Sustainability School @ Chandler High School program?
Answer: The aspect I enjoyed the most about SOS was the passion behind it. My teacher, Mrs. Culver, loved what she taught and put all her effort into her students to share her knowledge and passion. I was captivated not only by what she taught us, but also her devotion to the environment.
Q: What was your “aha” moment when you realized you wanted to study sustainability?
