Hiya! My name is Caroline Ayala and I’m from Turlock, California – just like Natalie! In fact, we’ve been friends since high school!
I’m a current student at UC Berkeley planning to double major in Environmental Science and Society & Environment. After my undergraduate, I’m planning to go law school to become an Environmental Lawyer and potentially going to graduate school and receiving a masters in ecology. It means I’ll be in school for a very long time. However, I think learning is amazing and it would be pretty cool to be called Doctor Ayala.
While I have lived in California for most of my life, I spent the last two years attending International Boarding School in New Mexico. There, I backpacked the Grand Canyon for five days and went on a 10 day leadership expedition to learn the skills necessary to become a Wilderness Leader and lead a group into the back country.
Since then, I’ve backpacked a bit in Yosemite and plan to go on more trips in the future. I’m definitely excited to hike around camp!
Other than backpacking and studying, I enjoy playing music, learning languages, writing, swimming, and rock climbing.
Some of my favorite summer memories are from attending summer camp and I’m looking forward to spending the summer at Coppercreek! See y’all soon!
