Standing up for what I believe and caring for others has always been my passion. In third and fourth grade, I raised money to save endangered animals. In fifth grade, I learned that deforestation and climate change threatened my favorite animal, the sloth, and the whole world!
My passion turned into ACTION through change. The Climate Reality Project trained me to be a Climate Reality Leader, and I taught kids across my state how climate change affects us and what we can do to change the world now to save our future. Local and state politicians heard my voice petitioning to prioritize renewable energy and clean air and to close the local power plant polluting our community.
In 2019 my ACTIVISM as a youth activist led me to co-found US Youth Climate Strike, which brought the Student Strike movement to the US. In a coordinated effort, we organized thousands of youth across the country to fight for climate justice.
After witnessing what can happen when young people use their voice and strength to create change, I founded ARID Agency. ARID's goal is to boost positive campaigns and bridge the gap between adult-run organizations and younger generations' creative power.
ARID's first campaign (gofundme link) is raising money to provide air filters to people in need. Climate change is happening now, and ADAPTATION is necessary while we fight to slow the effects. Disadvantaged communities are being left behind and cannot afford the tools to adapt. Our goal is to provide relief to communities most affected by wildfires and air pollution. Join me, and let’s save the world together!
Do you know of a community or group in need of air purifiers or a group managing food and supply distributions in your community that could also drop off purifiers to those in need of clean air? We shouldn’t have to fight this hard for clean air.

Hi! I'm so happy you are here!
A little about me... I'm 15 years old and live in Denver, Colorado.
