I like making decisions that affect others, I would like to be elected to office one day, and I would like to start my own business one day. Things I enjoy are leading, reading, meeting and conferences, writing stories and discussing politics.

I know now that one person cannot change the world alone. But I can help. I want to be a child advocacy attorney because children have voices too. We as children are always overlooked. But I want to change that. I am a an independent, educated , African American young woman. I will grow up to be a child advocacy attorney and I will change the world.

arroyo high school

I am athletic and helpful to my peers, have confidence in myself and very independent. I am observant and once you get to know me I am very talkative and outgoing. I am very loving and if you hurt me or the ones I love sometimes I won't forgive you. I can lead a group mostly during hard times and I can give encouraging talks to help uplift my peers and inspire them to do better. I find myself doing this a lot during soccer in a time where we are losing or not performing well. I want to help people with their problems mostly when working in the same group to reach a goal. I love to play team sports and be challenged a lot because I like to push myself to do more than what I think I can do. My interests are playing sports, meeting new friends and attending sporting events. I love being with my loved ones and spending time with my friends because they make me happy. I want to become a pro soccer player when I grow up and that could help inspire little girls that they can do whatever they put their mind to and I want to try and be that person for them.

Tina

Winters High

I am very sympathetic when helping out the environment and also reducing the use of fossil fuels. My understanding of how our everyday lives are affecting the environment and increasing the rapid expansion of global warming affecting the planet at an earlier rate concerns me. On a daily basis when I am at home I am writing notes and speeches on how we are affecting our planet in a negative away. My biggest desire is to speak my mind and talk about these issues to the world. One of the struggles that I am going to have to face is that people might not believe what I see so that means that I am going to have to be persuasive and be really expressive about what I have to say. It is better to make a difference because it is never too late. This is why I am willing to strive to reach my goal, as either an Environmental Reporter or a Climate Changle Analysts.

Delaney

Oceanside High School

Our generation is facing an unprecedented problem. One that our parents and grandparents have never had to overcome. Us young people are being forced to confront the results of our actions on an environmental level. As one of our Earth's many successors, I believe that the responsibility in ensuring our planet can prosper once more falls on all of our shoulders. As someone who bears part of that responsibility, I am determined to do what I can to make a difference for the better. I am a straightforward and independent person, but I also find team and group work very rewarding, and love combining the ideas of different individuals. I also like to be challenged and work towards new objectives, using my constantly evolving knowledge and experience to tackle problems head-on . My goal is to combine my natural affinity for science with my passion for sustainability, in order to find a career where I will make a positive impact on the world.

MJG

Deer Valley Highschool

Ever since I was young I was always challenged with the standard of beauty since I was a large asian girl which is not at all the standard so I think self confidence and love the things ive developed after 17 years really helps with the fact that I am outgoing and very extroverted. When I was about 7 years old I learned about reusable energy and its stuck with me till this day. I have always been someone who was interested in politics and social affairs, when I was 9 I wanted to be a human rights activist so its still my dream to be an advocater of something greater than myself. Im very worried about how money is being used in our current society because we truly could fix most of the enviormental problems.

Yohelia Gonzalez

Carver E&S

I like to think. Thinking is a great way to sort things out, and if you spend enough time doing it you come up with pretty creative ideas to connect your interest and your planet. I'm a solid and quick learner. My interests are engineering and laboratory experiments. I aim to own my own technology company, very Tony Stark like, and make world changing technology. With world changing technology comes world saving technology. So maybe develop some kind of technology that will benefit out planet.

Nymir W-W

George Washington Carver, Engineering and Science.

I am an extroverted individual. I like to meet new people whether they're important or potentially a new friend. Due to my extroverted personality, i can fit into an lot of different social groups without even knowing it because of my ability to connect with people confidently. I would also consider myself to think abstractly and think a head of time to and idea that is cooking n my mind. I think about life, and what my future holds; i try to think about my purpose and life and it leads me conflicted because i have endless options and don't know what to choose. This may have to do with the fact the i rely on others opinions because i find it hard to choose between something so little or important. This is why i like to meeting new people, new people have different ideas and NEW ideas that can testify to decisions i can't make. I need everything in life to have some sort of connection, for example, my extroverted personality helps me connect with others and meet new people, think abstractly and that causes me to think to much and can't make and decision, and new people have new ideas and can hep me come up with the best decision.

Gerard

I want to contribute my ideas in making transportation and energy more green and environmentally-friendly, as well as being efficient and reliable. I also want to develop different strategies to reduce waste, and control how is it disposed of. Today, I see so many articles and conversations about climate change and pollution. I want to change how we receive our energy, so we won't have to damage our air and surroundings in order to have a way of going with our daily lives.

Isaac

SOAR High School

I love uplifting my partners. I am a good catalyst for project growth. Ever since I was a young boy I have been interested in civil engineering. The idea of constructing something new compels me. I would be interested in designing windmills, in order to facilitate the extinguishment of burning fossil fuels. I believe this is the right path for me, because since I am good at assisting my coworkers, I would make a good lead engineer.
