I will reach out to the local animal shelter and organize a visit and tour to learn more about their mission as a nonprofit and about adoption centers in general and how to support them.

Myself and other Global Glimpse participants accepted into the program will ask for the volunteering support of Zumba teachers who will run the classes, will advertise through online invitations, posters, and flyers, and also bake healthy snacks to sell as part of a bake sale at the event. To attend there will also be an entrance fee. All donations/money collected will be put to support other students in being able to travel internationally and have a valuable experience.

I will reach out to a local adoption center, Adopt-A-Dog, and organize an hour long presentation on animal discrimination as part of Diversity Awareness Week, a week celebrating and empowering young people to realize the power in unity and inclusiveness amongst people in a variety of areas. This presentation will present background on animal discrimination for certain dog breeds, be interactive for students to gain a better understanding of this issue by asking questions, and leave students enlightened and questioning their previous ingrained views on certain animals.

We will organize and hold an hour long event beginning with a sharing of our stories and personal experiences/struggles as young women leaders with a formal presentation. Then we will have an panel discussion which leads to the opening up for questions from the audience. The goal of this speaking event is to bring recognition to young women leaders who do not receive as much credit for their work as men and hopefully inspire others to pursue what they enjoy and perform meaningful work.

We will welcome the pubic to come in, see what we do and meet the animals. We hope to gain new members, donations to help support the animals under our care and hopefully bring awareness to people about horse slaughter and how they can help Stop the Shipping of Horses to Slaughter in the USA.

My Roots & Shoots Club will hold a school-wide event inviting students and staff to come bake the treats for the shelter animals together after school while also raising awareness for the easy and fun ways to support animals in finding their forever homes in adoption centers.

Indialantic STEM classes could use the shade house to observe plant growth, etc., while learning more about our local ecosystem. I feel it is important for younger students to understand more about the problems that face the Indian River Lagoon, and to also feel like they can make a difference. This project would engage your students, and afford them the opportunity to interact with high school-aged volunteers that are eager to be positive role-models.

We will achieve our goals by first understanding the problems at our school and the communication breakdown. We will then create a strategic communication campaign to develop unity through a shared vision. For example, we want all students to understand what sets our school apart and what’s expected of a STEM learner.

My plan is simple, to take the concrete block outside, and transform it into a lush green garden where students can eat lunch, play, and relax. Firstly, I am working on raising the money to complete this project. I am creating water bottle drives, reaching out for donations, and speaking with local businesses. Once the money needed for this project is aquired the concrete block I meantioned before will have flowers, grasses, and bushes, all of which will contribute to a more positive experience for the students in my school. Nature has the power to connect students with Literature, Science, and History. It improves performance and concentration in school because being in nature increases dopamine levels. It gives students a place to relax and connect with their peers. IT encourages excersize and heealthy living. It helps to improve childrens mental health. It keeps kids out of trouble. Thus, if this project is finished to completion, I will leave behind a space of healthy recreation and peace for the future students who attend the CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the ARTs.

We want to build an "outdoor classroom" that will use the land, sea, and sky of our Bronx campus to provide opportunities to learn and protect our environment, share with our neighbors and give our students opportunities to gain practical skills and have outside fun. We will build and grow a container garden producing flowers for our neighbors in the nursing home next door, vegetables for a soup kitchen on Fordham Road, pollinator plants to support bees and butterflies, and other plants that are native to this area, like berries, sassafras, and June berries. We want to restore the Indian kettle in the river and add an oyster restoration project to help filter the river naturally. We want to add a weather station to help forecast severe weather since our neighborhood and school were crushed by Hurricane Sandy. All of these things will help us to lead environmental stewardship efforts in our corner of the Bronx.
