My passion is helping people become more mindful of their actions by inspiring them from my own experiences and I want to use my modeling platform to inform others about the environmental issues our planet is facing and bring awareness to what sustainable measures we can all take to make a difference. On my personal journey I’ve learned that the little things we can do can make large impacts, whether it’s eating less meat, buying natural fibers, or taking a reusable water bottle or coffee cup with you each day.
I’m trying to influence people who don’t have the time to or don’t care to educate themselves and I want to try to reach them in a way that makes sense for them to make the necessary changes to help lessen their carbon footprint. I’m currently the Director of Sustainable Culture for Our Children’s Earth Foundation, volunteer my free time with GrowNYC helping educate others about recycling, and performing textile / food scrap collection at the green markets throughout the city. I’m also a member of the NYC Fair Trade Coalition and remain active in attending sustainability events in order to continue educating myself in order to pass that information along to others through with my social media presence.
I want to be a Role Model because I feel it is my calling in life. I’ve been blessed with self awareness, and have created many opportunities for myself that most people dream of, but those opportunities mean nothing to me if I cannot help create a positive impact on others and this planet
