Laurie Horning is an Environmental Studies and International Studies major at Eckerd College in Saint Petersburg, FL. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, she moved away from the cornfields to be closer to her favorite ocean, the Gulf of Mexico. After the Gulf oil spill, Laurie decided to stand up against big oil companies and other non-renewable energies and has participated in Power Shift and protests against nuclear power. Aside from her environmental work, Laurie enjoys swimming in the ocean, singing and playing guitar, and traveling. She is excited to be an intern for Ride for the Future and can’t wait to take a journey on her bike!
