Allen Yuan is a rising sophomore at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland, where he is a part of the Design, Cultures, and Creativity Honors College. He is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy, with which he hopes to use towards his endeavors of creating a sustainable future that is not only environmentally-sound but also successfully serves every demographic. His interest in environmental conservation began with a childhood obsession with cetaceans, which has unwaveringly transferred to the present. Allen’s hobbies include baking, figure skating, reading, singing, and hanging out with friends. He hopes to help make WYSE 2022 as special and valuable of an experience as it was for him!
