Kenmore

Sustainability Ambassador since

Fall 2022

I am a junior at Inglemoor High School who is also relatively new to Washington State. I joined Sustainability Ambassadors because I was interested in taking part in an effort to shift communal climate awareness away from the individual and towards the larger corporations and statewide actors at play. I am also excited to work with like minded individuals to support a cause that I care about, as well as to learn how to best support those most greatly impacted by climate change within my community. As a result of my previous work with youth-led voter outreach groups, I aspire to further expand my first hand perspective on the value of youth voices within local government. I hope to be able to diversify my skill set to become more in touch with the world around me and reduce my overall carbon and water footprints. I aim to do this by reducing the amount of fish and dairy I consume, and by shopping more sustainably. In the future, I plan to pursue a career in global environmental and economic justice and help push for government implementation of sustainable policy. In my free time, I love to play the flute and hang out with my friends.
