Alejandra Dominquez, Team Leader
Alejandra was born in Caracas, Venezuela but went to middle and high school in Weston, Florida. She will be a junior at Columbia University majoring in Environmental Science, and is particularly interested in Paleoclimate and Paleoceanography. Alejandra enjoys playing volleyball and conquering new running distances – she is currently training for a half-marathon. She can’t wait to spend the summer traveling throughout Massachusetts on a bike with New England Climate Summer and spreading the word about climate change, its consequences, and the many possible solutions.
Samantha Burke, Media Coordinator
Sam is from Philadelphia, PA and is currently a rising sophomore at Wellesley College. She enjoys Linguistics, yoga, and all things green. She usually spends her summers working at a camp, but decided to bike with Climate Summer in order to live by her values & promote her passions. She looks forward to biking through Massachusetts with the rest of her team: MAss Acceleration!
Alyssa Henry, New Media Coordinator
Alyssa comes to New England Climate Summer all the way from Kent, WA. She is a rising senior at Pacific Lutheran University outside Tacoma, WA where she is majoring in Environmental Studies with minors in Women’s and Gender Studies and Religion. Alyssa is particularly interested in being an activist and working with the community on environmental issues. Her summers spend on the Long Beach Peninsula on the Washington coast is what sparked her love the world around her and lead her towards environmentalism. The story of how she got involved with New England Climate Summer is an interesting one, which involves hearing about the program from friends studying abroad in Namibia, Africa and being in the same study abroad program in Copenhagen, Denmark with a previous rider! No matter how complicated the journey to this program she is extremely excited to be living out her values this summer on a bicycle and push the climate movement forward, she also has high hopes to bring some of the dedication and enthusiasm back to Washington State and propel the movement forward.
Sarah Hopps, Outreach and Events Coordinator

She currently lives in Beverly, Massachusetts with her family who is her encouragement for building relationships with people and nature.

Sara enjoyed volunteering at the Amherst Farmers Market every Saturday monitoring the food stamps and credit/debit machine. She enjoys all outdoor activities, traveling, writing and singing while biking.
Eliza Sherpa, Movement Narrative Coordinator
Eliza lives in the eccentric town of Ithaca, NY where she enjoys exploring the local streams, eating exuberant amounts of pesto, and the occasional day on the farm eating carrots fresh from the ground. She attended LACS, an alternative, democratic school focused on student initiative which began her involvement in both environmental and social justice projects. Currently, she is a rising sophomore at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY where she is studying environmental studies and biology. She hopes to focus her academics on connecting the science behind environmental problems with promoting social change in order to shift our society towards more sustainable and safe practices. She is psyched to spend her summer biking in Massachusetts and connecting to local communities.
