Lucien grew up spending his summers in Guatemala, experiencing the negative effects of poverty and climate change first-hand. At the University of Central Florida, this exposure led him to study abroad in St. Kitts & Nevis and present and publish climate change impacts research. Also as a student, Lucien interned at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid, where he drafted remarks, organized events, and managed accounts for the ambassador. After graduation, Lucien founded Standard Hydro to develop sustainable agriculture in the Caribbean by building hydroponic, solar powered shade houses. Thanks to the Resolution Fellowship, he launched operations in August 2015 and currently lives in St. Kitts & Nevis, selling to food distributors and working with local farmers to incorporate sustainable agriculture practices.
