Lauren Gibson Stanford, California Founder, Carmel Green Teen Micro-Grant Program Years Involved with Roots & Shoots: 2009-2014 Position(s): Great Lakes and U.S. National Youth Leadership Council, NYLC Representative to Roots & Shoots Canada "Before joining Roots & Shoots as an eighth grader, I felt disheartened and intimidated by the world and the problems it faces. Although I cared about people, animals, and the environment, I neither had the awareness that one young person like me could have a significant impact on the world nor the knowledge on how to make that positive impact. Roots & Shoots changed all that. Roots & Shoots gave me the realization that each individual makes a difference, the inspiration to want to change the world, the skills to work towards positive change, and the network of incredible Roots & Shoots members and staff people to support me along the way. Because of Roots & Shoots, I now run a small nonprofit, pursue environmental science at university, and work every day towards creating a more sustainable world. I know that I can and do make a difference." Read more #RootsandShoots stories: www.rootsandshoots.org/25years
