A Student with Drive
Many of our students across campus are tackling climate change and climate justice. When we learned that astrophysics student Imani Ware was designing an eco-friendly, off-grid and resilient mobile tiny home, we knew we had to capture her work on camera. Ware — who has never done anything like this project before — prioritized using repurposed, recycled and renewable materials and supplies. Strategic Marketing and Communications videographer Juan Montes and staff writer Kanaga Rajan caught up with her as she prepared to attend the Orange County Sustainability Decathlon. Watch the video, “Driven to Help the Planet.”
