For student-athlete Georgia Barnes, an AIC senior studying criminal justice and psychology, returning to Australia for her long-awaited holiday break was a far different experience this year. Georgia hails from Canberra, in southeast Australia where wildfires are destroying homes, land, and have already killed an estimated billion animals.

WesternMassNews asked to share her perspective and recent experience upon her return to campus this week. It’s an interview well-worth watching.
