Successes & Achievements

 Teona Williams pic 

Meet Teona Williams: I developed a strong research interest in the intersections between marginalized groups and the environment during my undergraduate years. I knew that I would not be ready for graduate school until I had actively worked towards these pursuits. I am currently a 2012-2013 Watson fellow. The Watson Fellowship awards 25,000 to college seniors, in selected schools to travel around the world working on a passion.

My project looks at how marginalized groups participate in outdoor recreation/connect to their natural world. I have traveled to India and Malaysia, and I am currently in South Africa executing my project. Next, I will travel to Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and Brazil to wrap up my year. This year has taught me strength, resilience and adaptability. Most importantly, it has given me a chance to develop and refine my research interests. I look forward to applying to graduate programs that will shape my love of environmental justice, activism and history in the next two years.

Stephanie Lindquist photo Meet Stephanie Lindquist: I am currently developing a start up with two partners called MasterDabblers. MasterDabblers shares tips on how to expand your creative practice by learning from other practicing artists. We are also developing artist-curated mailings which supply you with materials and instructions from contemporary artists. 

This past September I left New York to live in Rome for a year as a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome with my partner and Rome Prize winner, Glendalys Medina. My work can be viewed at www.stephaniealindquist.com .
