2017 OEI Alum
Cristina Navarro is a senior at San Francisco State University majoring in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism with an emphasis in Outdoor Recreation. In high school, Cristina volunteered with Amigos de los Rios, and helped maintain the rivers and waterways in the San Gabriel Valley region, solidifying her love for stewardship and the environment. This summer, Cristina completed her first-ever backpacking trip with Outward Bound California and realized for the first time how strong she really is. Cristina is a fierce parks advocate and believes that public lands are spaces for everyone to enjoy. In the future, Cristina hopes to be a positive role model in her community and hopes to inspire friends, family members, and strangers to go out and experience the outdoors.
