Shaina Opperman
Michigan State University

Shaina is a student leader at Michigan State University (MSU) and is passionate about the outdoors and protecting the environment. She wants children now and in the future to be able to explore the natural wonders that helped shape her love for the environment. At MSU, Shaina helps to lead the “Student Campaign for Clean Energy” which works statewide to increase Michigan’s commitment to renewable energy and energy efficiency. As a leader, Shaina wants to “show others that anyone can get involved in a movement and that social change isn't some big abstract thing that only a few people can be a part of. Everyone can be an active citizen and do their part, and change isn't as impossible or intangible as it may seem.”
