Tarita is from Kolkata, West Bengal and came to the USA five years ago to attend university. She joined WEA after graduating from Drexel University with a Master’s Degree in Urban Strategy and a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability. She is passionate about sustainable communities, environmental justice and food sustainability. She is also interested in local climate adaptation tactics and non-western discourses on climate change, which inspired her thesis research on the fisherfolk communities in Kolkata. In her spare time, Tarita enjoys reading, hiking and going for walks in the city. Before WEA, she lived in Germany and even sailed in the South Pacific Ocean for 6 weeks, studying the ecosystems and cultures of Polynesian islands.
