Student Blog: Why Earth Team is Rad

HOW ARE YOU DOING! This is just one of the fourteen rad Earth Team members here at Pinole Valley High School. Together as a team, I BELIEVE we can make a difference!

Earth Team has helped me open my eyes to what is really going on with our environment. It has helped me become an overall better person. Making new friends and meeting new people is great, but when you’re doing it while making a change is even better. All of my trips with Earth Team have taught me something. I’ve learned how to put myself in other people’s shoes. I’ve learned to jump out of my comfort zone and to do certain things that teach me to appreciate life just a little bit more. Earth Team has taught me to slow down sometimes when I am stressed and to stop thinking about the bad things that are happening, but to focus on the good. Being a part of Earth Team has taught me a lot, but one of the most important things I have learned is to truly enjoy the little things. Even something as simple as reading a book or walking outside on a sunny day.

My name is Jeremy Francisco and thank you for listening to my Ted Talk.
