"Conservation work is about creating a world in which the needs of our natural environment are fairly balanced against the needs of humans that call these places home. Supporting communities that value and actively protect their environment and helping others see the value in a healthy environment are key to protecting the long term health of our natural world."
Stephane is a senior at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service majoring in Science, Technology, and International Affairs, and minoring in Latin American Studies and International Business Development. Passionate about the intersection of Latin American governance, environmental policy, and foreign affairs, Stephane has done research on the impacts of climate change on hunger and immigration in the Western Highlands of Guatemala, and the impact of electoral institution design on governance in Peru. Stephane has previously interned for Georgetown's Office of Sustainability and the Office of U.S. Congressman, Paul Tonko. He is also the co-founder and COO of Georgetown REUSE, a nonprofit that operates a pop-up thrift store selling used clothes and dorm items on campus. Origially from Toledo Ohio, Stephane is an avid runner, loves spending time on the water or in the mountains surfing and fishing, and enjoys playing the piano.
