Hello, my name is Andrea Richter-Sanchez. I was born in Venezuela and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. I am pursing a bachelors in environmental science and a minor in mathematics and biology at Florida State University. I want to help our planet during this environmental crisis we’re in. I am very interested in renewable energy, sustainable resources, and marine science. I want to help make a change in the world with what I am studying. I plan to go to graduate school after I graduate from FSU. My hobbies include reading, dancing, biking, listening to music and watching lots of Netflix. I am very excited for the SLAWR REU program and what it will teach me.
