Bethany N. Bella

earth lover | storyteller


I am pursuing an undergraduate Bachelor of Specialized Studies in “Themes in International Environmental Politics, Geography and Political Science” at Ohio University, with a minor in Anthropology and a minor from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. I aim to complete a Global Leadership Certificate by May 2017 and a Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies Certificate by May 2018.

My primary area of research is the intersection of human society and the surrounding environment. I’ve traditionally explored this passion through digital and print storytelling. I have particular interests in food studies, indigenous peoples and their relationships to the environment, preservation of language and culture, travel, and natural resource governance through national and state park designations. 

It is my sincere hope that my career will positively impact both communities and ecosystems on a daily basis, ideally through personal, in-depth field experiences.
