My name is Ryan Balba, and I am currently serving as the SDAPA student representative for UC San Diego and UC San Diego’s new PSO, the Urban Changemakers Club. I am an undergraduate senior currently finishing up my Bachelor’s in Urban Studies and Planning. At the moment, I am incredibly interested in the idea of age friendly cities and the different ways we can better prepare our cities for a rapidly aging population. In my free time I enjoy visiting the beach, being in nature, and trying different local restaurants in San Diego!
