Bliss Parsons

Bliss is a rising sophomore at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. Her home is in Newbury MA on Plum Island. Bliss is still exploring her options for a major, but is interested in political science and theory, critical social thought, social justice, French, and most recently, environmental studies. She first heard about New England Climate summer through a friend who biked last year, Leila Quinn, in her a cappella group on campus. Bliss does not consider herself a avid biker or athlete, but thought the idea of traveling around New England in small groups of students her age spreading the word of the climate movement sounded like a great idea, because she has always cared deeply about the environment. This also gave her the stepping stone she needed to take on her first big role as an activist.
