Abby is a rising senior at Boston University, studying Environmental Analysis and Policy with a minor in International Relations. She is on the BU Sailing Team and spends most of her days sailing on the Charles River with her teammates. This spring she participated in SEA Semester, sailing from Honolulu, HI to Palmyra Atoll. Living on a ship for 6 weeks and spending quality time with the crew showed Abby the value of close relationships and sharing time outdoors. She is very interested in climate change and environmental justice and enjoys sharing her passion for the environment with others. Abby grew up in Scituate, Massachusetts, spending a lot of time on the water sailing with siblings and growing an appreciation for community. For the past few summers, she has worked teaching sailing in her hometown and on Martha’s Vineyard. She loves meeting new people, enjoying the outdoors with new friends, and is excited to meet her campers and have a great summer!
