Zahrie Ernst graduated with a degree in Environmental Economics with a specialization in Green Markets & Sustainability in 2016. During her studies abroad Zahrie has traveled to Denmark, England, France, Sweden, Italy, and Tanzania. While in Tanzania she conducted research studies on the poverty and its relation to the ecosystem services and climate. Since her return, Zahrie has engaged the sustainability industry by advocating clean energy resources to local communities, which otherwise would not have the access or the facilitation to adopt the clean energy incentives, rebates on their own.
