Ulrich, a college sophomore at Arizona State University (ASU), is an outspoken animal-rights activist whose causes include boycotting seal hunts and slaughter, rescuing homeless animals, and helping orphaned animals in Africa. In January, Ulrich spent her winter holiday break from college in Africa, where she volunteered and assisted elephants at a wildlife park in Nairobi, Kenya.
