For those of you who don't know, my name is Emma Hodapp. I'm currently working on my Environmental Science degree, I have chosen this field of study due to my passion for science as well as the environment, and I hope to someday have a significant impact on helping solve the pollution in the United States. I am planning travel to Berlin, Germany to study abroad in the subjects of Global Sustainability and Environment as a student at Minnesota State University Moorhead in the spring semester of 2018. In Berlin, I will see how the city and its country are leading the way for sustainable development. I will also be digging into and elaborating upon the challenges our planet and communities face, and explore the roles that cities as a whole play in a healthier future.
