Anthony Neciosup is from Queens, New York and is currently a senior at Long Island City High School. He got involved with Global Kids’ HRAP (Human Rights Activists Project) during his sophomore year after he witnessed the devastating impacts of Hurricane Sandy on communities in New York City and beyond. Anthony was determined to learn more about world issues and climate change, and Global Kids helped him achieve just that. At the end of his junior year, Anthony had the opportunity to travel to Argentina and collaborate with Fundación TierraVida to further build his leadership skills and learn about sustainable living.
In the summer of 2014, he joined the ACE and Global Kids Climate Action Fellowship. One highlight of his involvement in the Fellowship has been helping to create and spread a campaign calling on our elected officials to mandate climate education in all New York Public Schools for grades K-12. When he is not working towards a sustainable future, Anthony likes to swim laps, volunteer, try new foods, and explore new places. In the fall of 2015, Anthony will attend college and will most likely major in the sciences.
