Elly Ronald

Hi, my name is Elly Ronald and I am a rising sophomore from Mill Valley, California. I plan to study environmental science and visual media studies. In my free time I love to do anything outside, including surfing, rock climbing, and backpacking. I have always been intrigued by how we can more ethically navigate the outdoor world while enjoying it for recreation or other reasons. This summer as my group and I walk one of the routes of El Camino de Santiago, a month-long catholic pilgrimage across Spain, we are investigating ethical cultural tourism as well as the economic, environmental, and social effects of the recent secularization of the pilgrimage on the local towns and people.
