Hanna Jacobsen was awarded the prestigious Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic school year. Together with the Santa Barbara Sunrise and Carpentaria Morning Clubs, the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara jointly sponsored Hanna Jacobsen. Hanna was selected to receive a scholarship grant of $25,000 to fund her studies abroad for one year and happily she was just notified that she will be placed in Brazil where she previously worked as a water quality intern for the Health & Happiness Project. While working in the Amazon, she collected water samples, performed lab analysis, and conducted educational programs for local populations about the importance of water purification. During the past 5 years, Hanna has volunteered extensively at home and abroad to help communities improve and protect their water supply through sustainable projects that promote health. In addition to working in the Amazon, she has worked in Jamaica as a water quality control assistant after flooding had occurred in that country and she was the key organizer of a citywide World Water Day event in San Francisco that addressed the issue of privatizing water. After graduating from UC Berkeley, Hanna earned her Master of Environmental Science & Management degree from UCSB in June and now hopes to combine her background in anthropological field work with the scientific skills she has learned to help communities protect their water supply. Hanna’s mission is to build bridges between nations and cultures so as to provide service to others and advance world understanding.   Email   Website
