Jessica Gay ’20: I’m a current junior from San Antonio, Texas who is a Biology and Environmental Studies double major. Outside of being a lab manager, I am involved in promoting campus sustainability as an Eco Facilitator and am also a member of Wesleyan’s QuestBridge/First Class Coalition. I spent this past summer learning about human-environment relationships in the Colorado Plateau as a member of the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars program at Northern Arizona University. In my free time, I love to sing, make playlists, spend time outdoors, and watch television.
