My name is Ayelet Zamek, and I will be serving as a Water Fellow with the County of San Luis Obispo Public Works. I grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Hong Kong, but now call Michigan my “adopted home state.” While attending Michigan State University, I became very interested in water policy and later served as an intern in the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. I aspire to help reshape the public and governmental discourse on water to be more holistic by addressing the multiple aspects of water, from water scarcity and water quality to water access and environmental justice. Serving in CivicSpark will allow me to follow my passion for water policy, learn about Western water issues, and help disadvantaged communities.
