Co-Team Leader, Issaquah School District
Rishi Hazra is a freshman at Skyline High School in the class of 2023. He joined Sustainability Ambassadors in the fall of 2019 to contribute to his community’s sustainability. He is currently working on incorporating the Green Sports Alliance in his district. In school, Rishi is involved with Club Med, Math Club, and choir. He’s also Skyline’s ASB Secretary where he is focused on minimizing waste from posters by limiting funding for decor. To stay active, Rishi runs for his school’s Track and Cross-Country teams. When he’s stuck at home, he participates in a mini-marathon of sleeping, playing the piano, and singing- at his family’s expense. With a burning passion, Rishi hopes to be a biomedical research scientist for all purposes strictly sustainable. His water footprint is 1440 gallons of water per day which is 20% below average. His carbon footprint is 76 tons of CO2 each year which is 54% below average. To reduce these, he is limiting his daily meat intake to twice a week.
