Hi, I’m Breanna McArdle, a second-year architecture student with a minor in environmental science at Belmont University in Nashville! I grew up in Fayetteville, Arkansas with my parents and two siblings where my passion for nature started. In my childhood, I spent a lot of time collecting butterflies, hiking, fishing, and starting to advocate for climate action in the Ozark Mountains. Now, I want to become a sustainable architect, and design buildings with recycled materials and energy efficiency. In my free time, I play the piano in my band, The Misdemeanors, make jewelry, and spend as much time as possible outside. I’m really excited to learn about different aspects of climate action and grow my faith through YECA!
