I had always wanted to travel. My answer to the often asked, ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ was always simple. I wanted to travel and help people and some way or another I knew I was going to make it my dream to accomplish that. When I got to college and began engaging with the world for myself I realized just how insanely connected the impact everything we did was having on our beautiful planet. From brushing our teeth, to cooking and consuming food, to buying clothes, to breathing the air. I realized that one of my dreams to travel, and see the beauty of the world would be crushed if I did not try to do something about it. As a college student and a woman, I have felt powerless in my actions to prevent climate change as an individual. I have never felt so far removed from the people who are capable of creating laws, enforcing some sort of change to happen. But that is precisely why I am starting this blog site. I needed a way to push my ideas out into the world to inspire maybe just one person to open their eyes and realize that every little thing counts when it comes to our Mother Earth. I want everyone to feel like what they are doing, and how they live everyday life is contributing to the effort to control climate change. I am just learning, and growing. I am just getting started, and I am not perfect either. I know I’m young, but I want to voice to be heard.
I have a lot of hope for this page. Blessed with the ability to create something like this, regardless of how successful this becomes, I’m grateful if just one person sees and changes their actions or the way they view the world.
