When I was in high school, I joined the environmental club because my friend invited me. After a few sessions, I was shocked and dismayed at how we, as humans are slowly but surely destroying our planet. I decided that I have to do something but I didn’t know what. In college, I decided to study environmental science because I felt that this would give me a great foundation to make a change in the world. Today, I am a very happy environmental scientist and I often talk to groups of people about how they can play a role in saving our planet. I believe that we need to start with the basics if we want to be kind: we need to be kind to ourselves as well as the planet before all else. Once we’ve done this, we can concentrate on other things: this is my way of being unique in the world!
