About awalant

Anna is currently a sophomore Industrial Design major at Pratt Institute. One of the main reasons she ended up at Pratt was for the Center for Sustainable Design Studies, which houses a green material's library as well as is the hub for various green projects on campus, such as Envirolutions. Before Pratt, Anna was awarded the Milton Fisher Scholarship in 2010 for collecting crayons from her community, recycling them into new molds, and giving them to local art rehab programs and children's daycares. She hopes to continue doing green projects in the future.
