Kareem Heshmat, 2018 EMI Student Panelist
Meet Kareem Heshmat, Educate Motivate Innovate (EMI) panel at the 2018 National Environmental Justice Conference.
Kareem is a Masters candidate in Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University in Houston. He discovered his passion for sustainability while volunteering in Arizona; however, it was not until 2017 that he transitioned from a career in financial services to urban planning. His focus is environmental justice and the siting of toxic hazards in low-wealth and minority communities. During his Spring 2018 semester, he visited Portland, Oregon to study bicycle infrastructure and the benefits of alternative transportation.
