Emi Okikawa

Producer - Seattle

Emi grew up surrounded by the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Her childhood spent exploring tidepools, snorkeling over the reef, and hiking in the mountains led her to fall in love with the environment at a very young age. Most recently she was the Community-Based Storytelling RAY Fellow at Ocean Conservancy in Washington, D.C., where she highlighted the stories of leaders of color within the environmental justice field. Having traded one Washington for the other, she's currently the Digital Communications Fellow at the Washington State Sierra Club Chapter. Follow her on Twitter @EmiOkikawa.
