Kristin Jackson, Maine Team New Media Coordinator
Kristin grew up on the rocky coasts of Maine, spending her summers swimming, sailing, and playing on the beach. From a young age she grew to love the outdoors, and her passion eventually inspired her to pursue a degree in environmental studies. She is chasing this dream at Brown University, where she is currently a rising senior and member of the varsity swim team. She now recognizes the fragility of the ecosystems she considers home, and feels a moral obligation to protect and respect the natural world, along with its fellow inhabitants. She is excited to be a part of the Maine Team this summer, where she can get a taste of being an activist while making a difference in the communities she grew up in.
