Cynthia Agustin

Cynthia Agustin is a first-generation Guatemalan-American, born and raised in Southern California. She grew up going on hikes and camping trips with her family, and fell in love with the outdoors at a young age. Her most cherished memories involve visiting National Parks in California, where she found her passion in conservation and sustainability. While growing up in Southern California, she witnessed the environmental and social impacts that climate change and pollution has had on her community, which inspired her to pursue her education in environmental science. Cynthia is currently a senior at California State University, Long Beach, where she will obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Science and Policy with a Minor in Geography. In the future, she plans to further her education and pursue a Masters degree in environmental conservation. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, baking, hiking, spending time with her family and friends, and hopes to visit many more National Parks throughout the country.
