Selena Harris

Selena Harris is passionate about the earth and all it has to offer. With a love of the arts, sociology, wildlife, hiking, and wailing on the banjo, she is involved in various prairie restoration groups, folk bands, ASL clubs, and can be found jamming out with old folks at the Alzheimer's and dementia home. She hopes to take these interests to focus on environmental protection, human rights, and making art and music accessible to students worldwide. Her goals for the year are to learn how to weave, hike the Andes, meet an alpaca, master a new language, and embrace new perceptions of the world. "It frightens me, the awful truth, of how sweet life can be..." Bob Dylan
