Name: Rebeka Dawit

What brought you to Crag?:  I came to Lewis and Clark to study environmental law, and I have always wanted to work in public interest environmental law. When I got to law school, Crag Law Center was always a name that circulated around the career office and professor’s recommendations. I applied during a public interest career fair and the rest is history!
What are your environmental/legal interests?: Environmental justice, habitat/wildlife conservation, climate change advocacy, and international environmental law.
Favorite place to recreate: Anywhere with water. Preferably near the ocean!
Favorite book: The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu
Favorite quote: “You carry both lightning and thunder in that space between your bones and soul. Become the storm you are hiding from, a hurricane does not hide from the rain” – Nikita Gill
