Bella Staal is a junior Environmental Studies major and Journalism minor at Colorado College. She loves sunny weather and big trees and will often announce this if given the chance. At university, Bella writes for the Active Life section of the newspaper, The Catalyst, and volunteers for the Office of Sustainability. In her free time Bella enjoys taking part in any and all outdoor activities that the weather permits, and finding new cafés to halfheartedly study in. During her semester in Morocco she is hoping to improve her French and her writing skills.
