YEPI Sustainability Summit
Hosted virtual environmental conference to engage 70+ students in climate solutions
My favorite project was the YEPI Sustainability Summit, one of the biggest environmental conferences in the community. It was exciting to see so many participants equipped with the knowledge and skills they needed to design and implement new environmental projects to save our planet. I believe that this summit was very impactful and empowered many students to find climate change solutions and furthered their climate advocacy!

One of my biggest accomplishments was speaking at the City Council Meeting where the Regnart Creek Trail went to vote. Although I was initially nervous about speaking in front of the City Councilmembers, partaking in the meeting helped me get out of my comfort zone and speak up.
