Mayrah Udvardi, building something big

She came from Corvallis, Oregon. She's the president of two organizations, Wellesley Energy & Environmental Defense and AscenDance, a contemporary ballet group. She's a senior finishing two majors, in architecture and environmental studies. And then? "I want to build sustainable, affordable housing in marginalized communities. The passion that Wellesley students bring to their lives—it's inspiring. It's eye-opening. You feel like you're part of a community that can make real change in the world."
