Undergraduate Student

Michele LeBlanc

Major: Geography

Expected Graduation Date: May 2017

  • Minors: Environmental Science + Leadership and Social Change

I am scheduled to complete my Bachelors in Geography with a double minor in Environmental Science and Leadership & Social change in three years, graduating in the spring of 2017. I am a Student Program Facilitator for the VT Engage Office at Virginia Tech. In this capacity, I develop and foster relationships with community partners with whom I coordinate service trips for student volunteers. I have become closely involved with Students Helping Honduras, a non-profit seeking to eradicate gang violence in Honduras through education, during my time at Virginia Tech. I will be going on my second service trip to El Progresso, Honduras, this coming spring of 2016. I will also be studying overseas at the University of Reykjavik in Iceland in the fall of 2016. I am seeking long-term employment abroad in the field of global development. I am interested in the effects of globalization on rural tribal-clan cultures and the implementation of modern sustainable infrastructures in these developing societies. As a contributing leader of sustainability in my field I hope to have a positive impact on the lives of individuals I interact with through my work as well as on the organization under which I am employed.
