EHRA Fellow Profile
Yasmine Elhagehassan, 2019
Yasmine is currently double-majoring in Art & Design and the Program in the Environment at University of Michigan.
I am glad to have been a part of the EHRA experience! The program allowed me to understand the ongoing environmental issues in my community and the sociological impacts of such issues. Being surrounded by a supportive environment, working among experts and learning with other EHRA members, created a memorable and engaging experience!
During the 2019 EHRA Academy, youth and community leaders participated in a participatory mapping session identifying key environmental assets and concerns in Dearborn and nearby. They used this collective information to draft air monitoring action plans.
