Raenita attended the University of CA- Berkeley earning her Bachelor’s in Public Health. She then attended the University of CA-Los Angeles earning her Master’s in Public Health with a concentration in Environmental Sciences. She is currently the Strategy Specialist at UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability. As someone who is deeply passionate about climate, health and equity, I’m aspiring towards a career in environmental health policy and research, specifically addressing environmental racism and the need for climate resilience in vulnerable communities. I’m currently nurturing this goal as the Assistant Director for Assessment, Education Research and Partnerships of UCLA’s Center for Diverse Leadership in Science (CDLS). At CDLS, I’m working to build, fund, and advance programs and partnerships related to environmental and climate justice. In the future, these passions for environmental health and justice may take me to other non-profits and eventually into government. After all, I’d like to be the President one day.
