Humans of Haas: Lindsay Saldebar
Written by Annie Wang.
How do you feel as a Haas student?
I was really grateful for this opportunity. Haas has opened a lot of doors for me. In hindsight, this experience serves as a personal reminder that this degree is far too impactful and delicate to be taken lightly. The privilege of a Haas education- a Berkeley education for that matter- demands a commensurate amount of thanks and effort to make the most of this privilege.
What are you most passionate about and why?
From a young age, I have always sought out a channel through which I can make tangible and scalable progress for my local communities every day. In college I was able to see the possibility of intersecting business and sustainability. So, I turned this passion towards making this difference through business. Having past internship experience, volunteering locally, being part of Net Impact, and more, has really showed that my passion for improving the environment has endured. From projects in the Bay Area to those in international markets, I find it incredibly rewarding to be part of this effort to provide sustainable business solutions for this diverse world.
Whatever my career path or story, I ultimately hope to share this passion for social impact with others and continue to surround myself with like-minded people similar to my classmates here at Haas – who are empowered not only to be constantly learning but who also are taking strides to make the world a better place for future generations!
