Hi, my name is Clio. I am from Portland, Oregon. I am currently studying journalism and environmental science at Bennington College in Vermont. I want to write about our climate crisis in a way that is both engaging and accessible to those outside of academia.

Last winter, I interned at the community justice nonprofit magazine Oregon Humanities. When not writing, I love to hike, make jewelry, and doodle in my sketchbook.
