She recently became the first in her family to graduate from college after earning her Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. While in college, she amassed over two years of experience working in policy-advocacy, communications, and grassroots organizing roles at the local level by assisting in creation of a regional Green New Deal for the Central Coast. In her free time, Ruth enjoys spending one on one time with friends, eating, experimentally cooking, and exploring new places.
