Talia Schmitt  The College of William & Mary

Talia is a student leader going into her sophomore year at The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. She is studying environmental science and plans on pursuing a career as an environmental educator. She co-founded the program, Eco-Schools Leadership Initiative (ESLI)  in which high school and college students use games and activities to teach elementary school students about the environment. The goal of this organization is to provide resources and a network of students to those interested in environmental education. This summer ESLI is partnering with Fairfax County Public School's Get2Green and the National Wildlife Federation to put on Fairfax County's Environmental Education Conference. Talia is also her school’s Sustainability Dining Intern and works to provide students with fresh and local options as well as educate the student body about sustainability initiatives like composting in the dining halls. If you have experience with environmental education and would like to be part of this conference or want to chat about sustainable food, she would love to hear from you!
