Giovania G. Tiarachristie
G is an international studies and sociology double major at Dickinson College, focusing on globalization and sustainability. An avid farmer, biker, boulder hiker, builder, and cartoonist on the side, G has found her greatest passion working with communities in environmental justice and participatory urban planning. G works in public education and technical assistance for the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) to empower and equip Pennsylvania communities, especially in the Marcellus Shale region, to reclaim their water quality rights. She also helped develop the Dickinson Idea Fund, a green student revolving loan fund on campus dedicated to community engagement in social and environmental issues.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
