Sustainability Ambassador since

Summer 2018

Iris loves math, the sciences, music, reading, writing, and history, in no particular order. She also likes philosophy and economics, especially behavioral economics. She is on her school's Rocketry and Math Clubs and hopes to bring science Olympiads to her school this year. She likes to travel (anywhere is fair game) and learn languages (her current project is fluent French, but she's also learning bits of Chinese, German, and Latin). Iris plays piano and cello; she composes and has been recognized nationally for her work. If she’s not making music, then she can be found listening to it. She also uses her creativity for other things, like embroidery, knitting, and crochet. In the future, she aims to study and practice medicine as an M.D.-Ph.D.; she wants to focus on neurology. She joined Sustainability Ambassadors because she wanted to help make a difference; now that she’s in Sustainability Ambassadors, she’s committed to helping other people make a difference, whether in her hometown or abroad, as a leader of the International Learning Team.
