My name is Kruttika Gopal and I am an undergraduate student at American University in Washington, DC. I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and minoring in Political Science. Additionally, I am working towards accomplishment in the American University Honors Program as well as a Certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies through the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program.
Throughout my academic career, I have displayed my passion for environmental justice and protection. I aspire to have a career in environmental health policy to not only defend our planet from climate change, but also protect the communities that are most vulnerable to pollution and climate threats. I am passionate about advocating for marginalized voices that are underrepresented in the environmental movement. In my time at American University, I look forward to engaging with the D.C. community.
