“For as long as I can remember, nature has always captivated me, with its dancing butterflies and thrashing rapids and intimately connected web of people, animals, and ecosystems.”

Roots & Shoots History: One year with Roots & Shoots

Vaidehi is a senior in Round Rock, Texas. She has been with Roots & Shoots for one year. Vaidehi was inspired by her Roots & Shoots project to expand her palate and begin eating more vegan food. Last year, she took AP Environmental Science, and this course led her to realize her deep passion for the environment and the need for human awareness of the issues. Upon learning of Roots and Shoots, she has made plans to start a local Roots and Shoots chapter and looks forward to working with the National Youth Leadership Council members towards our shared goals.
