There, Robin saw first-hand the consequences of poor environmental policy, and befriended several men and women who were fighting to reverse the damage. Since starting at FAMU in January 2011, Robin has joined the university's Green Coalition (FGC), a student group that champions sustainability and environmental livelihood among FAMU students, and Tallahassee in general. He also serves as Multimedia/Online Editor for The FAMUAN, the university's student-run newspaper.

He looks forward to being the voice through which FAMU students can channel their worries about the environment as one of FAMU's Green 4 All Ambassadors 2011-2012. For fun, Robin skates, sketches, writes and takes pictures. He is also developing his skills in the kitchen.
