Madison Roveda is an SAS Honors program student majoring in Geography and possibly Environmental Studies here at Rutgers. She is passionate about environmental concerns such as climate change, in addition to the study of human geography. Her original plans for college were to major in Biology with a minor in Spanish and was hoping to become a Physician Assistant, with a set career in the medical field, until she took an environmental studies class. The crucial decision Madison made her freshman year to switch to geography has brought her to this fellowship. At Rutgers, she works as a student laboratory assistant at RUCDR Infinite Biologics. As a result of her passion for environmental issues she became an intern for NJPIRG, a non-profit organization that works to create political change. Once graduating, she plans to work in environmental management or community development and travel frequently.
