Jocelyn Furr is a junior at Indiana University. Hailing from a more rural part of Indiana, she has always had a great passion for nature and its many wonders. From a very young age, she knew she wanted to be a scientist, and help to preserve the natural world. She assumed she would end up a biologist or a chemist, but that changed when she was nine years old. She still remembers watching her first presidential inauguration and realizing that she needed to understand the fascinating world of politics. She is now a dual degree candidate at IU, working towards a B.A. in Political Science, a B.S. in Geological Sciences, and a minor in Mathematics. She is hoping to continue her studies after graduation by combining her interests into a Master’s in either Climate Science or Environmental Policy.
