I am scientific, observant, broad-minded and can think abstractly to explore a variety of ideas. In my free time I enjoy computer programming, building models, sketching, and p[laying computer games. I want to apply my interests and knowledge to becoming a programmer or robotics engineer. I could use my talents in the field to safe guard computers from viruses and cyber terrorists or to make more natural prosthetic for retired veterans.

We might not want to admit it but at this moment earth seriously lacks the amount of pure water. The need of pure water is far more than what we have now. We are also running out of energy day by day. Trees are cut everyday to make room for houses and farms for the overgrowing population and the very paper we use in our day to day life. Scientists have found solutions to each of these problems. We could recycle the water, we could build solar panels and we could plant more trees but there's simply not enough people dedicating their lives to solve problems like these .Of course, there are young people like me who want to work on these problems and I hope we would have a better life in the future instead of destroying this beautiful planet. We have to act now or we will face our doomsday really soon.

I am a artistic, creative, hardworking woman that has great goals in life. I care for the people and world around me, therefore I want to make the world a better place, I want to help now so that the their would be better opportunities in the world. I want to find ways to lower pollution levels, help the fight against climate change, help the world do better things in the future than it is doing in the present. I see myself as introverted, but once I get to know you, I am very extroverted. I like to draw and make different things as well as write and read, sing and dace, and I can play instruments. I also dabble in lab experiments.

I am independent, observant, and creative. I enjoy computer-based activities: PCs building, programming, and gaming. My experience with computers and technology leads me to want to apply my knowledge relating to helping develop and sustain our healthy environmental resources. My hobbies include sketching (particularly the environments) and collecting things (coins around the world as I travels). I also like to travel the world taking notes of ideas the world has to offers to better improve the livability of the environments and the species living in it.

My interest are being physically active and trying my best to go green. So I believe that if I become a body and mind trainer I will be able to keep people healthy and active and also allow them to have a positive, "go green" mindset. This would be very beneficial for the world because right now the world is at an all time high in unhealthy people and the world being unhealthy itself. If people learn to become more healthy and treat the world better, we all can live longer including the world.

Ari

Carver HSES

I consider myself an artist and everyday I find myself sketching and admiring movies and films for not its story but the work the artists put into it, and usually you would see me on my phone watching these things instead of paying attention to the world that has people constantly pouring its trash into it and polluting its environment. I want to be able to reduce pollution and waste that is either thrown or poured out there every day and I believe I can do this if I apply my strengths. I am creative and I like to be independent when it comes to my work. I hope to protest using my Art of the things that would still be alive if we hadn't polluted the world so much.

I am creative, observant, persuasive and generous. I can think critically and give speeches to persuade others. In one way or another, my interests tie together in some way and or can be incorporated together. My main interest and hobby is photography. I also love camping and hiking. I can not only use the skill of photography to take pictures of the beautiful environment but also spread awareness and show what a lot of people don't often see. Such as the effects of littering or not taking care of the environment. I also love politics. It's important to be aware of what is going on in the world and I am determined to constantly learn and obtain information about current events. I would love to do political photography of speeches for example. I could also use photography to capture moments of injustice to bring awareness to the public. I would also like to pursue becoming a history teacher which can help give kids a fun way of learning about important events that have happened. I absolutely love history and I enjoy learning new things every day.

Venture Academy

I am a friendly person that can talk to others about how they can change the world and make better choices for everyday living. I love to participate in religious meetings by speaking to others and meet important people that help the environment and society. My hobbies include painting and drawing that include gardening. As well, I do my best to work on environmental challenges that include pollution, littering, wildlife, and sealife crisis. Though many think there is an abundance of water sources, we have a crisis of polluting it. As well, we need to save energy throughout our city because in many places don't have the sources to receive it every day. We can face the challenges by doing minimum things and improving them as we all go along. We can all achieve having a healthy environment if we all make the difference.

I have always admired nature. My admiration is my drive to cooperate with future colleagues and reach a solution in any challenges we will face. I am determined to solve complex math problems to reach that conclusion. I am patient to take results slow and interpreted them carefully. By finding solutions I can change a small part of the world: proudly knowing I'm doing my part.

Habitats of Fish

Chino Hills High School

I am a marine biologist hoping to make a change to this world we call call our home. Due to civilians and their habits with littering, all kinds of fish, ranging from blue whales to tiny tadpoles you see have not been able to thrive in a clean, natural environment. I make this claim because due to all the trash bags and litter falling in the ocean, our fish population as a whole has decreased harshly. There is one simple way to stop this. The humans must use the trash cans and recycle bins that are provided in order to keep these helpless creatures alive.

Edison High

I am a person who is independent when I want to, but also social. Some of my greatest passions are politics and various aspects of nature, which is why one of my other interests is photography. Since politics of nature play a big role in my life, and everyone else's as well, I'll use that to benefit and make the environment a better place- whether that be local or a national level. I also work best with people, especially if we share the same ideas, but if we don't, I take into consideration their feelings and listen to them.
