Sasha Drumm is an environmental engineering student at Michigan Technological University. She has a strong background in leadership through her experiences with journalism, the Green Club, and Youth in Government. Born and raised in the small town of Quincy, Michigan, she always dreamed of reaching out and helping the world beyond the borders of the United States. While traveling the world for the first time through the Spring 2015 Semester at Sea voyage, she was able to confirm that she does indeed want to pursue an international career. Sasha’s passion for helping others and the environment leads her to a lifelong goal of providing the impoverished with pure and safe drinking water. She is honored to start improving the world one step at a time with UpTica; and as a co-founder she will help to empower women in Costa Rica while also decentralizing the communities waste.
