2024 Land Stewards: Jessica Rodriguez

by | LS 2024, LS Display

My name is Jessica, I go by she/her pronouns and I am a lifelong learner and advocate for every population that is oppressed. I am taking a break from my studies at Cal Poly Pomona, where I major in English and Special Education, to be here and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity. My love for the outdoors stems from being a Girl Scout in Southern California for 10 years where I cultivated a deep love for simply being outside. 

I decided to become an Mt. Adams Institute AmeriCorps intern because I have a passion for making the outdoors more accessible for BIPOC communities and I was told that was a mission in this program; I am most excited to see how I can help in that vision as well as make connections with likeminded people.
