Tanya Helbig

My name is Tanya Helbig, and I was born in Kiel, Germany, but raised in San Antonio Texas. I am a second-generation college student working towards an undergraduate degree at St. Mary’s University in Environmental Science and minoring in Business Administration. I have worked on projects during my undergrad that involved sustainability, conservation, and environmental management. My goal is to promote sustainability in all communities and inspire others to become more environmentally active. I aspire to work with either non-profit organizations or government agencies relating to environmental management/policy. I am proud of my Mexican/German culture because it has made me the diverse and open-minded person I am today. In my free time, I enjoy getting out of the city and going to parks to enjoy the great outdoors. National parks have always had a special place in my heart and have been the reason I cherish the preservation of natural environments.
