While studying molecular environmental biology as an undergraduate, I first started to learn about the influence of sustainability. My undergraduate institution is well known for its promotion and education for sustainable practices and the environment. So when I was accepted to the David Geffen School of Medicine and UCLA, I was excited to explore the public transit scene as a first step toward sustainability after I moved to Los Angeles.
Contrary to all that I had heard about Southern California, Los Angeles public transit has a lot to offer.
