I am Jashaun Bowens, an Undergraduate student of the Honors College at The University of Illinois at Chicago and a member of numerous organizations here on campus. I am a Psychology major, and I will be perusing a Graduate Degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology. One of the organizations I am deeply involved in is the Undergraduate Student Government. I am currently the Sustainability Coordinator for the Sustainability and Infrastructure Committee. I have always had a passion for ecology, understanding how organisms and individuals interact with their environment makes me more knowledgeable in all aspects of life. Realizing that not only must we rely on our community members, but on the natural world around us, reestablishes the connection to the environment we have lost over time. I am member of the Energy Initiative because being able to discuss the concepts we have all learned with one another empowers us to become a greater contributor to society.
