Namita is an Economics major in her final year at school and is interested in being able to use their degree and knowledge from classes towards sustainable energy solutions. Namita learns from doing and practicing and therefore is excited for hands-on experience through the Cal Energy Corps Program. Namita is currently working at an organic farm in order to learn more about sustainability on a local level and is enjoying the outdoors / away from the screen time. In her freetime, Namita picks up hobbies often on a weekly basis, from learning Garageband to playing basketball (she has never played before), and is looking forward to when the next inspiration strikes.
