How would you like to be introduced on stage?

Meet Ruby Leverington. She is 20 years old, full of energy and is passionate about environmental ethics and justice. Originally from New Zealand, she moved to Indiana in 2018 to complete her undergraduate degree and compete for the Indiana University Rowing team.

Why did you decide to participate in CNI's Learn / Hustle / Grow summer program?


After signing the carbon neutral petition, I wanted to volunteer and be part of the solution not part of the problem. I want to find a group of like minded people who are committed to achieving this goal also.

What might we accomplish together this summer?


I imagine creating a more conscious and compassionate society in which the environment and its policies are made more of a priority. I imagine a more diverse and set of leaders who can achieve the goals we put in place as a team. Once we get the ball rolling, the momentum will be fantstic.
