Winters High

I am very sympathetic when helping out the environment and also reducing the use of fossil fuels. My understanding of how our everyday lives are affecting the environment and increasing the rapid expansion of global warming affecting the planet at an earlier rate concerns me. On a daily basis when I am at home I am writing notes and speeches on how we are affecting our planet in a negative away. My biggest desire is to speak my mind and talk about these issues to the world. One of the struggles that I am going to have to face is that people might not believe what I see so that means that I am going to have to be persuasive and be really expressive about what I have to say. It is better to make a difference because it is never too late. This is why I am willing to strive to reach my goal, as either an Environmental Reporter or a Climate Changle Analysts.

Oceanside High School

Our generation is facing an unprecedented problem. One that our parents and grandparents have never had to overcome. Us young people are being forced to confront the results of our actions on an environmental level. As one of our Earth's many successors, I believe that the responsibility in ensuring our planet can prosper once more falls on all of our shoulders. As someone who bears part of that responsibility, I am determined to do what I can to make a difference for the better. I am a straightforward and independent person, but I also find team and group work very rewarding, and love combining the ideas of different individuals. I also like to be challenged and work towards new objectives, using my constantly evolving knowledge and experience to tackle problems head-on . My goal is to combine my natural affinity for science with my passion for sustainability, in order to find a career where I will make a positive impact on the world.


Deer Valley Highschool

Ever since I was young I was always challenged with the standard of beauty since I was a large asian girl which is not at all the standard so I think self confidence and love the things ive developed after 17 years really helps with the fact that I am outgoing and very extroverted. When I was about 7 years old I learned about reusable energy and its stuck with me till this day. I have always been someone who was interested in politics and social affairs, when I was 9 I wanted to be a human rights activist so its still my dream to be an advocater of something greater than myself. Im very worried about how money is being used in our current society because we truly could fix most of the enviormental problems.

I like to think. Thinking is a great way to sort things out, and if you spend enough time doing it you come up with pretty creative ideas to connect your interest and your planet. I'm a solid and quick learner. My interests are engineering and laboratory experiments. I aim to own my own technology company, very Tony Stark like, and make world changing technology. With world changing technology comes world saving technology. So maybe develop some kind of technology that will benefit out planet.

I am an extroverted individual. I like to meet new people whether they're important or potentially a new friend. Due to my extroverted personality, i can fit into an lot of different social groups without even knowing it because of my ability to connect with people confidently. I would also consider myself to think abstractly and think a head of time to and idea that is cooking n my mind. I think about life, and what my future holds; i try to think about my purpose and life and it leads me conflicted because i have endless options and don't know what to choose. This may have to do with the fact the i rely on others opinions because i find it hard to choose between something so little or important. This is why i like to meeting new people, new people have different ideas and NEW ideas that can testify to decisions i can't make. I need everything in life to have some sort of connection, for example, my extroverted personality helps me connect with others and meet new people, think abstractly and that causes me to think to much and can't make and decision, and new people have new ideas and can hep me come up with the best decision.

I love uplifting my partners. I am a good catalyst for project growth. Ever since I was a young boy I have been interested in civil engineering. The idea of constructing something new compels me. I would be interested in designing windmills, in order to facilitate the extinguishment of burning fossil fuels. I believe this is the right path for me, because since I am good at assisting my coworkers, I would make a good lead engineer.


Pete Knight High School

I'm a creative person who's constantly trying to help others. I enjoy drawing, building, playing sports, and assisting others. I also love to see positive changes in the world, there are many issues within our world and seeing them get solved brings hope to me. I hope to be one of those people that can be a solution to those problems. That's especially why I want to become a mechanical engineer, maybe I can help people with their issues like with their water or food, or in need of solutions of problems within their areas. I just want to provide aid to people who aren't as privilege as others or even provide that aid into bettering our world.


SOAR High School

It is time for change. Our environment is wounded and in need of help. We -- all people -- should be pushing for more sustainable green energy resources and limits on pollutants produced by large manufacturing industries. However, many have proven that they are unwilling to change. So, we must create a solution. I hope to channel my proficiency in 3D modeling, computer programming, drive to do better, and desire to create in order to optimize/innovate on current green energy sources. Years of environmental malpractice has damaged our communities sometimes beyond recognition; we must be willing to be changemakers.

Being a teacher could allow me to teach the next generation of humans about what they could become, and show them all their potential. Becoming a therapist could allow me to use my social skills and allow them to get through tough times in their lives. Overall, I think that I could make a big contribution to society, just by utilizing these strengths and interests that I have.


Chino Hills High School

I believe I am very creative and imaginative in this world, where I think a lot whee i have abstract ideas that I create in my head. I like reading stories, analyzing stories in video games, books or movies, and I have an idea of creating clothes in the future. I the same time I think I have an idea of design and art, I like judging whatever clothes is good and what is bad. This also creates a path towards reselling or marketing clothes and shoes that can either flop or sell. I seem to have the idea of marketing. I'm also very active with a lot of things, where I believe i can be a police officer if I took it serious.
