Class Year

My name is Drew Racioppa, a senior at St Lawrence University. In my 21 years of life, I have really come to value the education of experience. I realized as a teenager that to help change the world, you have to see it. You have to feel the water, see the birds, learn the language, bake the bread. I became obsessed with communication and how people from different cultures interact. I have studied mangroves in Kenya with the Kenya Marine Fisheries Research Institute and worked on the highest continuous peak planting native mamane trees on Mauna Kea in Hawai'i. I have surfed, climbed, ate, slept, hiked, researched, swam, planted, and sailed all in the name of conservation, and I have barely scratched the surface of the surface of what can be done. I love learning, helping and communicating. What better than conservation for that role.
