Hello, my name is Alicia Wong and I am ACE's newest Climate Action Fellow. I try to be as involved with helping the environment as I can be. I am the president of the Eco-Warriors environmental club at Edward C. Reed high school. I have been in this club for two years now. Last year, the Eco-warriors and I had fundraisers to earn money for a water refill station in our school. It was recently installed, and the students at Reed love it. This year, we are working on the no idling campaign along with a few other projects. With every project we work on, we encourage all of our students to help out. I am so proud to be a part of the environmental club at my school. Not only are all of the members very involved, but so are many other students. Everyone is an Eco-Warrior in their own little way!
I applied for this fellowship because I love helping out, and I want to learn more about climate change. I am very excited to be a part of this fellowship, and I can't wait to start. By being a Climate Action Fellow I will build up leadership skills, learn more about the environment, and find more ways to make Earth a 'greener' place! I appreciate Rebecca for giving me this opportunity, and I can't wait to see what it brings me.
