“I don’t believe we will be able to solve some of the world’s biggest problems like climate change, systemic racism and institutionalized inequity without being able to look to the people on the frontline of these changes and seek their guidance.” - Michaela Stith


Duke alumna and 2018 Betsy Alden service-learning award winner Michaela Stith is publishing a book that addresses climate change, systemic racism, and institutionalized inequity. “Welp: Climate Change & Arctic Identities” is a travel memoir about navigating social life in Tromsø, Norway (Romssa, Sápmi) as a Black, mixed-race girl from Alaska.
