2014-2015 Action Fellow

Fighting climate change is something that isn’t big at Carina’s school, but that is something that she want to change before she graduates. There is so much a school could do that can make a huge difference. She currently does little things such as picking up garbage on streets, recycling, using less water, and buying thrifted clothing (thrifting is literally her life). The little things to her are what makes a big difference and she hopes to continue to keep making that change on a greater scale.

Besides fighting climate change, she is also really active in school. She holds various leadership positions and takes part in giving back to her community in any way that she can. She also really enjoys writing, listening to music, and exploring all that nature loves to offer. If she absolutely had to have a superpower, she would shape shift because let’s face it, how cool would that be?
