Philana A Jeremiah

Born in the Bronx, New York, I have lived in numerous cities, three US states, and four countries. I consider myself a citizen of a global community, having traveled extensively.  I obtained a Bachelor's in Geography with a concentration in Environmental Sustainability and a minor in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from Georgia Southern University. Before applying to graduate school, I started an enterprise in 2016 named Shea Adora, a skin-care business that sources shea butter from Ghana. My research interests include sustainable eco-tourism in Eleuthera, Bahamas and exploring new GIS applications in the private and public sector.
