Hi, I'm Emily, I'm 20 years old. Sometimes when walking along the street or on park benches or public places, people always pass by the homeless , we dont know their stories and their situations, I study to become a costume designer at the TNUA, and as I know how people dress or seem to be, will affect them very much-- I wish that EVERY HOMELESS PEOPLE on the street can have access to a bath and clean clothes and food

Reach out to local businesses and inform them to the ecologic and economic impact of straws.

I would like to continue to work with a local youth program (ARTS-Us) that runs STEM/arts programming year-round. I would like to lead workshops that teach youth about STEM and how it relates to food justice through hands-on learning. I would like to buy seeds to grow food that we will use to cook meals with the youth so that they can see the full process of natural foods (from the seed to what you put in your mouth)!

My volunteers will shop and deliver the food to the Afterschool program. They will also discuss good nutrition and help educate our children and parents on nutrition, advise families of avenues they can use when they have no food; shop for the food; supervise and assist with the loading and unloading of food. The children and volunteers will help set up the bags to be used to pack food; they assist the children and parents with sorting and packing the bags of food and distributing the bags of food.

In our area, when people come to the shelter, they are presented with book bags. The “Go-Go bags” will fit nicely in the book bag even when they have other items in there. My organization will get our volunteers to shop for food and we will pack these bags. We will pick up toiletries from the local doctor offices and insert small pamphlets of words of encouragement. Once they are packed, they will be distributed to the Women and Children’s Homeless Shelter of Mecklenburg County. I once lived in the shelter with my grandmother for a short period and I want to be there to help the women and children as people helped us.

I am leading the Women Changing Our World Foundation (Twitter: @WCOWUSA), a women's advocacy organization and nonprofit founded in partnership with MetoWe and the Myna Mahila foundation, which has partnered with the Downtown Women's Center on LA's Skid Row, to support residents, young women, girls, and teenagers in impoverished or underserved parts of Los Angeles in support of UN Women's mission to ensure a fair and equitable environment and end gender parity. Our objectives are to empower young women and girls, targeting those part of indigenous and traditionally underserved communities, reduce stigmas concerning menstruation which prevent young girls from receiving an education while being culturally sensitive, and disseminate health and hygiene information and sanitary pads and products assistance for 5,000 girls and young women. The importance of uplifting the young girls who will grow into the female leaders we revere is only highlighted by the recent women's march and its crucial place in our communities.

Bring healthier food options to after school programming at Youth Works after school program by shopping the organic section of the store, as well as the farmers market when it opens in the spring to ensure the freshest snacks to those children who live in a "food dessert" and most often do not have the opportunity to eat fresh produce.

We will grow food in crates. Each family takes home a themed sustainable food system. For example. A themed pizza garden may include tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, onions etc.

We would like to use the funds to support active community service trips and initiatives. We plan to use the funds to make sandwiches for a group that donates them to people who are experiencing homelessness, to buy supplies for local food banks and to support the City Meals on Wheels program. On a larger scale, we will use to funds to raise awareness within our school and larger community about this important issue.

My class has chosen to focus on pollinator awareness. We've started a small apiary in the school and working on increasing public awareness. My students are learning to keep honeybees, extract and bottle honey, and use beeswax to make products. Our current obstacle is to increase the availability of pollinating plants by planting fruit and nut trees in the school park
