All about Camille: Camille’s passion for a greener future finds its roots in her childhood spent in South Africa and Switzerland. She was lucky enough to be in South Africa to celebrate a decade of democracy. Camille learned early on to appreciate the value of freedom and understand that there are more ways than the apartheid to limit freedom, such as adequate access to necessary resources.

In Switzerland, Camille took the ever-punctual train in morning, learned that everything can be recycled or composted and receving 70% of electricity from beautiful waterfalls up in the mountain, Camille could not help but become interested in renewable energies. Thus Camille’s childhood inspired her to choose Bioresource Engineering as her field of study. She focuses on Energy and Food Security.

Recent Adventures: Camille recently completed a field study trip to Cuba. Alongside twenty other students she toured the island, visiting urban and rural farms and agricultural research facilities in order to learn how the Cuban population has adapted to the very real necessity of producing and obtaining enough food whilst still conforming to government policy. Studying in Cuba proved to be a unique life experience.
