Daniel E. Sherrell
Daniel Sherrell is an environmental studies major, committed to helping the most vulnerable populations adapt to climate change. He investigated the effects of climate change on rice yields as the environmental correspondent for a Cambodian national newspaper, and helped develop a kerosene-to-solar substitution project as an intern for the Clinton Foundation climate initiative. At Brown, he leads backpacking trips with the outing club and is working with an incredible team of students to divest Brown’s endowment from fossil fuels. This summer he will work with 350.org to scale up the divestment movement. He lives in Providence with his pet gecko.

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.
