Ingrid Espinosa Malpica

Ingrid studies Environmental Sustainability at UBC in Geography. She grew up in Mexico City, and developed a great appreciation for nature after moving to Vancouver.  Here, she realized just how valuable nature is and how lucky Vancouverites are to be living in such a beautiful place. Her passion for the environment has led her to volunteer with UBC’s Zero Waste Club through which she helps teach others to be more sustainable. She hopes that during her time with SPES she can similarly help others to connect to the environment and come to love and value nature like she does.  If it were up to her, Ingrid would move to Italy and spend all her time eating pizza. For now she enjoys hanging out in the sun, reading, and doing crosswords.
