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.

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?"
