Open-minded, imaginative, determined.
Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by nature, climate change and environmental issues are of foremost importance to me. I want to help eliminate climate change not only to protect the environment but more importantly, to stop the amplification of existing social issues as its byproduct.
I would say that history has proven to us that anything is possible. We simply need the optimism and ingenuity to imagine something else, and the tenacious and continued collaboration to pursue it. This is the mindset I believe we will need to tackle issues like climate change.
