Ian S. Karra
Ian Karra is a rising senior at the University of Georgia majoring in economics and finance. He is an executive board member of the UGA chapter of the Sierra Student Coalition, working to transition his university from burning coal on campus to investing in renewable, decentralized technology. He is also a leader with the Southern Energy Network, a regional environmental organization, and the coordinator of the state environmental network Georgia Youth for Environmental Solutions. Ian aims to work in development of grassroots environmental advocacy organizations in the Southeast. In his free time, he enjoys eating Thai food, catnapping, and running, but not at the same time.

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.
