My 6th grade teacher was a huge environmental activist and my love of nature stems from that. She was a huge influence on me. Thank you Miss Connelly!!!

Before pre teenage I did not appreciate natura, I took everything from granted, I did not bother about pollution issues. I think Governments should spend time and money to inform people of the importante of preserve the enviroment

My parents would make me play outside a lot as a kid to make sure I got plenty of fresh air. So, I've always had a deep connection to nature.

i made the connection at 5 years old that the meat on my plate came from a life I would rather see alive, I haven't eaten meat since! 35 years of not eating meat and 20 of those years I've been vegan!
