Aileen Palma

Class of 2017

Aileen Palma was born and raised in the foothills of Colorado and developed a passion for the outdoors. When Aileen started at Colorado State University, the only thing she wanted to do was work outside and help protect the environment, so she is pursuing a degree in Conservation Biology. She wants to inspire others who haven’t had the chance to participate in outdoor recreation, and for them to become more active and to build an appreciation for nature. Her goal is to build bridges between different cultures through environmental education, and she is excited about doing that in her internship at Grand Canyon.
