Hiii! My name is Cesia Mejia. I’m a Junior intern. My favorite hobby is to read. I love music but I don’t have a favorite genre. I always like trying new things but I barely do it so I thought that this was going to be a great opportunity to start doing something new. Also, I will get to learn new things about our environment and also be able to help my community. I’m looking forward to have great experiences, to meet new people and to grow as a person. Finally, I think that this will help me to develop my social skills and my language skills.

If you know don’t know me, I’m Naomi
I live in Richmond City, California, and I’m an eleventh grader here at Richmond High School. A few things I enjoy doing are drawing, reading, writing, watching YouTube, Tiktok, you know the whole shabang. I joined the Earth Team because I want to go out more, and explore new things. I want to step away from social media for a bit and interact with people and the environment. One of the main reasons I joined was because I want to make a difference and it kind of irks me to see people go on about their days and ignore the amount of trash just splattered on the ground, pretend like climate change doesn’t exist, too focused on their phones and drama, instead of focusing on pollution and air quality, not to mention wildfires, diseases, and so much more!
