I believe that we have the power to make a difference and that our actions make a difference no matter how small! I lam passionate about environmental topics related to conscious consumerism, wildlife conservation, plastic reduction and the zero waste movement. I am currently the president of my school's environmental club.
On a More Serious Note
I am driven to make a difference in the world because:
I believe even though I can't change the world, I can make a huge impact within my community. And why not make the world a better place for others? By taking care of our planet now, we are ensuring that future generations will also have an opportunity to experience all of the amazing things that earth has to offer.
The greatest skill I bring to a team is:
planning- I love to have a plan and a vision and follow through with it.
My proudest moment working on community projects was:
seeing our hard work pay off.
If I could change one thing about my community it would be:
our mindset. We should be focusing on reducing, reusing, refusing, recycling and repairing instead of just throwing things away for the sake of convenience, or bringing things into our homes that we don't need. We often choose things because they are convenient (myself included) and don't pay attention to the environmental impact.
