Alexis Kennedy is a rising fourth year student at Penn State University Park majoring in Geosciences. Through Penn State’s City Semester Pittsburgh program, Alexis is interning with Grounded to learn how to sustainably repurpose vacant land in Pittsburgh. Alexis is also earning a certificate in Earth Sustainability, where she has been able to learn about global sustainability efforts, and has even got the chance to apply these tools hands on in Belize completing a capstone project designed around plastic waste management earlier this spring.

Alexis is excited to explore the city of Pittsburgh this summer, learn more about its collaborative communities, and to be a part of the inspiring efforts and sustainable initiatives that Grounded is a part of.

In her free time, Alexis enjoys hiking, traveling, playing the flute, and watching Twilight.
