Daishly's Story

My passion is helping out the environment.

I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to the U.S when I was four. The environment where I lived was no where near as close to the environment in NYC. In my birth town, there were trees everywhere. Here in NYC there is none of that in neighborhood. The city is polluted with skyscrapers and the fumes of hundreds of cars. Over the years, I went back to my birth hometown and I realized how beautiful my community was. This made me committed to make sure that the community I live in today can be as beautiful as the one in Dominican Republic.

Attending Brown’s Environmental Leadership Lab (BELL) program will help me achieve my goal of making this country’s ecosystem healthy. Participating in this program will improve my knowledge of alternative energy technologies and solutions that can be implemented in my community. I will be able to expand my understanding on which resources my community should take advantage of and which ones they should stop using.

A Note from Ms. Hart, Daishly's Teacher

"Daishly is a talented science student and consistently earns some of the highest scores on class assessments. More importantly than her scores, Daishly has a curiosity and drive to understand science. Her experiences traveling between the Dominican Republic and NYC have opened her eyes to differing climates, but I know she would benefit greatly from an even greater perspective that can be achieved during this summer program. Daishly is also a budding leader and being surrounded by like-minded students will encourage her personal development."

My amazing experience at Brown Environmental Leadership Lab

Attending this program was a life changing experience. I grew up in the city, so of course I am a city girl. I usually dislike all types of bugs and hate to get dirty. So, deciding to attend this program was a big step out of my comfort zone. My motivation for this journey was the fact that I knew I had to challenge myself and push my limits because it will be the only way I will be able to make a difference.

At this program, I learned about so many things that I thought I knew before but never really put much thought into. Whether it was how much of a difference eating white meat instead of red meat can be towards reducing carbon emissions to exploring that being a leader doesn't have just one set of expected behavior. This experience really opened my eyes to how much I am capable of and I will take advantage of my new knowledge and share it as much as I can with my community.
