Minnesota truly is the land of 10,000 lakes, and I am currently on an expedition to explore as many as I can. Water is life. My connection to our natural world has fueled my passion for the environment and has led me to protect what I love. I started an environmental club at my high school and spoke as a panelist at my local town hall, and I express my motivation to care about climate change through art. Nature is where I truly feel the most at home, and I am willing to protect it at all costs.
