Mariel Kieval recently joined the Freshwater Society as an intern research assistant. She is working in the development and fundraising departments at the Society.
- Explain how water is important to your life- share a story, experience, etc.: Water was an issue I had never really worried about, until I traveled to Israel and learned about how many of the seas and rivers there are slowly losing water. That experience made me more aware of the need to keep our water clean and conserve it.
- How do envision working for water in the future? I am considering a major in sustainability, which includes water protection.
- Tell us more about yourself. I will be a senior at Wayzata High School this fall. I am also a part of my school’s Eco Club, and am president of our Amnesty International Chapter. In my free time I enjoy figure skating, playing cello, reading and baking.
