Sionainn Rudek '23
My name is Sionainn (they/he) and I am a fourth year Environmental Studies major from Hillsborough, North Carolina. When I'm not learning about sustainable cities or mycology, I like to go running and make little creations in the pottery co-op! I am also in Tank co-op, which has been a magical, bean-filled journey during my time at Oberlin. My dream is to one day live completely "off-grid"in a self-sustaining community of human beings, regenerative buildings, and earthly critters. My time on the Green EDGE Fund Board has given me the opportunity to explore and solidify my commitment to sustainability, resiliency, and community-building.
