Climate change is something that unites every single person on our planet. Being born and growing up in our beautiful valley I have seen the effect of climate change over my lifetime. The summer of 2020 was when I became deeply frightened with the extreme fires and with the thought of what our precious land can suffer from in the years ahead. As a mother and an educator, my hope is in our children’s future. We must unite to restore our present and help our future generations in the care of our planet. I am committed to taking any and all of the steps I can to help our home that is our mother earth.
