Laura is a senior majoring in Chemical Engineering at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey where she is actively involved in a numerous amount of organizations. She fell in love with nature after spending her childhood summers hiking in the Alps and she takes every opportunity she can to enjoy the forests and green spaces in her area.  Laura is also a firm believer that the actions of a single person can change the world. Therefore she tries to live life by spreading messages that she feels passionately about- sustainable development, economic and social development, gender equality, and animal rights just to name a few! In her spare time, Laura also enjoys learning about different cultures, watching documentaries and Skype-ing her grandma who lives in Italy. She is excited to be a part of the CSocD54 team and is looking forward to learning a great deal from this experience.
