Red Horse

El Rancho

My interest is mechanics and tinkering with technologies. I was born building things around me. I will see if I can use my skills to make the world more earth friendly.

Skylar

Student of the Akashic Records

I am a leader, an imaginative and introspective thinker, an expressive, and original artist, an intuitive and empathic healer, and infinitely curious and ambitious.

I believe the biggest source of the worlds issues derive from ignorance and complacency. I seek to broaden others feilds of view to new teachings of love and acceptance, as well as health and self care.

I enjoy using my personal knowledge of psychology, sociology, spirituality, physiology, and natural medicines to help others awaken to their truest potential. It is our duty not only to ourselves, but to our communities and the very earth that sustains us to realize how we can utilize our own unique assets to best uplift society and protect the natural beauty of our planet.

My personal goals are to travel and experience with an open mind and heart, to be a student of as many fields of study as I can, to dip my toes into every industry and opportunity that interests me, and to more deeply develop my artistic talents to better share my soul with the world.

Pablo VI

El Rancho

My goal is to one day become a very influential singer and/or songwriter. In a time where many people are materialistic and would never even consider the planets status, our goals in life should be to preserve the precious resources we have for later generations and a powerful message can be sent through the power of music. As a strong independent leader I would gladly express my views to everyone and hope that we can move towards renewable energy and what I believe is important which is cleaning polluted water.

Unemployed Artist

I am very creative with doing whatever comes to my head, and if I have a vision for it I do it and try to make it come to life. I like to work by myself but still have good skills cooperating with groups and other people with the same mindset as me. I can design clothes and other sorts of things. Whenever it comes to groups or meetings I am usually the one directing what to do or the one giving out the most ideas. I like to help people with their personal problems or conflicts they have within their life because I am very good with communicating with people and giving the right advice. My hobbies are making clothes and photography as I see a great passion for these things and have a very determined mindset of what I want when I design them.

Smitherines

George Washington Carver of Engineering and Science

As a student I am imaginative and intellectually self confident. Some of the things I can do is sketch, solve math problems, and understand scientific theories. I always want to be challenged because even though someone maybe be athletically better, smarter, or even popular than me, I want to show them that I am not the boring person they think I am and that everyone is special in some type of way. One of my hobbies would be travelling and visiting new areas because after seeing New York there is no way I would want to stop seeing new places, there's a whole world waiting for me!

that boy

Engineering and science

my changemaker statement is to tell everyone to actually do something. every environmental problem and every issue in the world has already been listed and people have already found solutions. so instead of just discussing what solutions to take why don't we go out and actually do something. there are people in the world who are actually working to save the environment and i admire that but these days the whole discussion about trying to save the planet and healthier living is just for show. they just use that to sell their products because they know what we want to see. so my statement is to go out into the world find a problem and instead of having a debate team debate it. have the debate team go out and fix it.

Nas

George Washington Carver Highschool of Engineering and Science

I think of the world as a friendly, yet dangerous place. Depending on your effort and your set of skills and interests changes that person's future. A person's future depends on how that person responds to certain things and how it effects them. I like to think of myself as more of a strategic person. I'm not a risk taker. I just think that everyone should analyze before they tale a huge risk or leap. I'm also prefer to work independently. A goal that is achievable alone just makes more sense to do alone. If i were trying to go for a goal that helps the world become a better place, i think that i would try for editing the way we use electricity. Humans tend to use electricity like it's water. I think that the way we use power could definitely be better. My goal would be to improve the use of power so that we could reduce the strain of it that it causes the earth.
