Evelyn's Story

My passion is Environmental Conservation.

I discovered my passion for environmental conservation through my interest in gardening, which then led me to want to advocate for climate change. During my sophomore year I started eating an avocado a day and, due to the high cost, my parents decided to limit me. Frustrated, I decided to plant an avocado plant and from there garnered an interest in gardening. Then, through my volunteer position at Chabot Space and Science Center, I signed up for the Enviro team to learn more about the environment. Furthermore, by understanding the vitality of the environment I began to get frustrated with the ineffective actions being taken by nations such as China and the US who are not fulfilling their climate agreements. I have discovered over time a passion for environmental conservation by taking action to ensure that we maintain the health of our planet.

A Note from Mr. Jackson, Evelyn's Counselor

While I wish I could answer this question through a variety of anecdotes chronicling Evelyn's experiences, I feel that my words would not do Evelyn's dedication justice. Evelyn is one of the most hardworking and committed students I have ever met. Through the Wishbone program, I truly hope that Evelyn will be awarded the opportunity to demonstrate and practice her abilities in order to prepare her to be a future leader in any area which she chooses to pursue.
