Katrina A. Klett
Katrina Klett was raised in a migratory beekeeping family between North Dakota and Texas. She is living in Minneapolis attending the University of Minnesota with a major in Chinese language and a minor in sustainability studies. In addition to being a full-time student Katrina works on projects that train farmers how to raise bees in China, Vietnam, and Sierra Leone. She is passionate about finding ways for rural people to generate income in a way that sustains the environment they live in. After graduation she plans to apply to Columbia University for an M.S. in Environmental Science and Policy.

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.
