Ryan is currently a senior at Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, California. He is a Co-President of Nourishing Earth, a health and environment club that educates the rising generations through service projects and visits to local libraries and elementary schools. Ryan is also involved in his school's musicals, choir, and Model UN team.
Ryan has always been interested in climate issues, but his immersion trip to India over the summer really shaped his worldview when he saw the impacts of climate change on people in developing nations firsthand. He believes that it is the responsibility of the rising generations to have a hand in shaping the world and strives to create a sustainable society that preserves the beauty of the natural world and its inhabitants. Through programs like the ACE Action Fellowship, Ryan hopes to raise his voice and take tangible steps towards creating a future that we can be proud of.
