Clarissa de Leon

Ben Abbott Lab

Clarissa is an undergraduate from Miami, Florida and is currently studying Environmental Science and Sustainability with an Urban and Regional Planning Minor. Living very close to the Everglades for most of her life, she hopes to help conserve and restore wetlands and see how to improve the relationship between wetlands and humans. She also aspires to work with cities to see how, as a community, they can live more sustainably at a local level while also addressing their needs. Other hobbies she enjoys include playing guitar, reading, doing service, and spending time with friends and family.
