Cordelia Zars is excited to be a new volunteer for Wyoming Public Radio this winter; she is currently taking a year off of college and is exploring opportunities in the world of public media.
Cordelia grew up in Laramie, and last year completed her freshman year at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. Although she is still undecided, she hopes to study International Relations and Spanish, as well as Environmental Conservation. In her year before college she spent six months in Chile and Argentina, interning for the National Outdoor Leadership School, teaching English, and discovering her love for cross-cultural connection. For the past three summers she conducted ecology and amphibian field studies for the Berry Biodiversity Center at UW, and someday hopes to integrate her love of the outdoors into her passion for humanitarianism.
Cordelia is also very devoted to the arts, and spends much of her free time playing piano, singing, and writing creative essays and poetry.
Cordelia has always been a strong proponent of Public Radio, and feels lucky to have the opportunity to work with the WPR staff this year.
