Zoe Sheppard

Mid-Atlantic Regional Fellow

St. John's University & FT Campaigns

Zoe Sheppard, originally from Maryland, is in her third year at St. John’s University in Queens, New York, where she is majoring in Environmental Studies as well as double-minoring in International Studies and Social Justice. Her passion for Fair Trade started in high school when she was responsible for developing, implementing and teaching a curriculum surrounding human rights. Zoe’s interest in Fair Trade took off from there and her involvement has grown ever since. She has been an active member of the St. John’s Fair Trade committee since her sophomore year of college and continues to integrate Fair Trade studies into her academic research. Zoe is also a recent alum of the Sondheim Nonprofit Leadership Program, a fellowship in which she gained hands-on experience in the non-profit sector. Throughout the duration of this program, she was able to develop a deeper understanding of non-profit frameworks and outreach. Zoe is excited to apply this knowledge to her work with Fair Trade Campaigns.
