About

Charlotte Kirsty

Kirsty is a recent graduate of Minerva Schools - a San-Francisco based university with a 1.9% acceptance rate - where she studied Integrated Biology in Earth’s Systems. Over the past 5 years she has lived in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul, San Francisco, Hyderabad, Wellington, and London; taking on internships and courses around the world. She was recently invited to attend COP26, the UN’s Conference on Climate Change where she represented civil society in negotiations about the future of agriculture in a changing climate. This was the culmination of work with an Argentine NGO, for whom she created educational content related to the impact of farming and other activities on climate change. She has also spent time at a biotechnology start-up in Berkeley where she investigated the role of bacteria in agriculture, and the potential for bacteria to provide plants with essential nutrients. While at university, she interned with a Biolab Seoul in South Korea where she led a team to develop a bio-leather from bacteria and yeast as well as design and construct technical equipment for the lab. Her passion for creative and active teaching has led her to Curious Cardinals, where she hopes to use her experience and enthusiasm to help students learn in a welcoming and engaging environment.
