Kayla Hunter  Spelman College

Kayla, who hails from Maplewood, New Jersey, is a junior at Spelman College, majoring in Environmental Studies with a minor in Public Health. She is passionate about Environmental Justice as expressed in her Eco-Mission, “Environmental Justice brings social, political, health and economic justice to minorities and poor families all over the globe. It's my mission to bring these issues to light and represent the disenfranchised population.” In pursuit of her Eco-Mission, Kayla serves as Health Co Chair for Spelman's NAACP chapter and also as a Sustainable Spelman intern. As a Sustainable Spelman Intern, Kayla is responsible for organizing sustainable events that are educational and influential to the student body while keeping sustainable practices very alive on campus.  Last year, Kayla helped to organize the “Plant It Forward” event at Spelman with the Environmental Task Force to inform students of their work and to build a presence on campus. Because of her environmental leadership, Kayla has earned NWF EcoLeader Certification
