My vision of the future is a world where human development and natural environment work in harmony. I believe that through the realization of that harmony, basic human needs would be met by all, lessening the potential for human rights violations, and creating a more peaceful world. My personal ambition is to inspire youths in becoming global citizens, volunteers, and environmental stewards through education of conservation practices and the human-environment relationship.
I am a storyteller. I hope that my writings and efforts in the environmental education field will inspire future leaders across communities.
