I am a junior from Dallas, Texas, a city that has surrounded me with people who fuel my passion to care for others and everything around me. Throughout my life I have been an avid backpacker, camper and hiker, which has made me acutely aware of the dangers of climate change, global warming and pollution, topics that I am passionate about. I hope to make a positive impact on my community by informing others of the state of our environment, and leading initiatives to aid our sickened ecosystems.
