Alison Lancelotti

My name is Alison Lancelotti. I am a junior at Graceland University, double majoring in Graphic Design and Studio Art with a passion for environmental sustainability and am an advocate for environmental consciousness. While growing up in Norwalk, Iowa I was always outside in my front yard climbing apple trees, smelling wild flowers and collecting my favorite leaves and rocks from around the pasture. My grandfather encouraged my love for the outdoors and taught me about which plants were edible and which to look out for, what plants would help alleviate ailments and how to identify the ones that would cause sickness. My father and I also plant a garden annually, adding a new vegetable or fruit each year to see which ones fair well in Iowa's climate. My appreciation for the process of nature and beauty in each of God's creations continues to grow while I do, and being a part of Graceland University's Environmental Sustainability Team has been a wonderful and humbling experience. I hope that I am able to explore new opportunities in my next and last year at GU, taking what I learn now and utilizing it when I move on to my next adventure into the adult world.
