Kayla Lemus graduated from Cass Technical High School in Detroit and is now majoring in Political Science Pre-Law.

"I’m a research assistant currently, I am researching the impact of public policy and public financing on the environment, alongside public perceptions of environmental issues. I'm particularly interested in understanding whether citizens in the United States, especially in urban areas like Detroit and Los Angeles, prioritize environmental policy in their voting decisions. Additionally, I'm exploring how cities integrate public financing and environmental safeguards into their policies. Looking forward, my goal is to become a corporate lawyer in New York. I'm passionate about using my legal expertise to tackle pressing environmental and societal challenges."
