René

I am a sophomore at Greenwich High School in Greenwich, Connecticut. My passion for alleviating food insecurity and world hunger sparked from annually organizing numerous food drives within my community and collecting over 12,000 goods. Outside of school, I am a Youth Leader on the Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council of The Jane Goodall Institute, I am a Taekwondo black belt, I play the bassoon and I love to read.

My HERlead Project: ROOTS & SHOOTS

I will address the issue of healthy food security in Greenwich, Connecticut in my HERlead Project by building an organic community garden that will produce a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables to be donated to the local food bank.
