Brenda Ramirez

Class of 2016

Brenda Ramirez was born and raised in Southern California. She is the first in her family to go to college and received her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies with a minor in Feminism from the University of California Santa Barbara. Living next to a channelized river bed initiated her interest in natural and city issues. With the beach and other natural areas just a short walk away from campus, she gained a deeper appreciation for nature itself and realized how valuable having natural spaces nearby could be. She hopes to use her experiences and the knowledge she gains to not only spark a passion in others, but also to provide the tools and opportunities to make change as well.
