Ariel Daniels graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2021 with a Bachelors of Arts in Environmental Science and Policy. Growing up involved in Girl Scouts, doing routine beach/park clean-ups shed light on the intrinsic relationship between people and nature for her. Thus, Ariel went on to conduct a service learning project of raising $2000 for the non-profit Toys-for-Tots through revenue from recycling and exercising grant writing by partnering with Companies such as Costco to match any of the proceedings. During her schooling, Ariel was a research assistant to Associate Professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy, Nícola Ulibarrí, analyzing climate-smart agriculture practices and strategies. Ariel also went on to intern at the City of San Diego in their Planning Department under Traffic Engineer, Claudia Brizuela, utilizing ArcGIS software to analyze traffic data for roundabout implementations. With a strong interest in specializing in Economics and Policy of the Environment at the Bren school, Ariel strives to work in government as an Environmental Planner.
