Meet our Teams
Earth Team really helped me solidify what area of STEM interested me the most. I loved the research aspect and I loved learning more about the impact our actions have on our environment. I want to break down the different factors at play and really understand how we can tackle the many problems surrounding climate change.
It has taught me many valuable things, one being how important it is to share your knowledge with other people and that is something I want to do.
Earth Team encouraged me to pursue a career path which will allow me to create a change in my community. By pursuing a career in film I hope to spread awareness through videos about important issues, including environmental issues.
It has helped me communicate better with people as well as working in a group.
It made me really understand the impact we have on the environment. I did my whole senior defense on plastic and the way it affects the planet. Someday, I’m looking to try to get into environmental politics. Maybe I’ll use my screenwriting degree to write movies that showcase the things that are going on and that can be my shoe in.

Richmond High School
I am currently a senior at Richmond High School. To why I joined the Earth Team can be on debate, a short and simple answer would be, "to support the environment," however, it is much more complex than that. We are a community and a unity; one oblivious choice can bring us down but others who stand, who make an act, bring us even higher. Ask yourself. Are you willing to take a stand with us?"
I love the earth and all the things about earth, but I want a life where the less unfortunate don't suffer because of what we did and are doing to the planet.
I am a junior and joined Earth Team because I am very passionate about the environment and would like to help it as I learn more about it.

I want to make a difference and prove to people that I can make a change, and what better way to prove that than by saving the earth from their mistakes?
I’m a junior at RHS. I joined Earth Team because I saw it as an opportunity to meet new people and have fun. I am interested in helping the environment because I live in it.

I am 16 years old, a junior. I joined Earth Team because I want to help out the environment. I want to be a part of the change in the environment. I am passionate about the environment, animals, lands and sea and if I can protect them from harm I will.
I love to play baseball, and am deeply concerned about the condition of our environment. Growing up, I was raised to leave spaces cleaner than I found them, this translated into my everyday. I always loved playing in the dirt, and Earth Team seems just the right place to do that but with purpose. That purpose being fighting the climate crisis we are experiencing in the 21st century and creating a better environment for us all.
