Quoted: Leehi Yona ’16 on Climate Conference in Alaska

“I spent the past few days in Anchorage, Alaska—sometimes in the same room as John Kerry and Barack Obama—but the most incredible words I heard came from a cab driver,” says Leehi Yona ’16 in an opinion piece for the Responding to Climate Change website about her experience at the Aug. 31 Global Leadership in the Arctic: Cooperation, Engagement and Resilience.

Yona is doing her senior fellowship project on Arctic climate policy, and traveled to Alaska with funding from a Stamps Leadership Scholar Award.
