I’m an 11-year-old homeschooler. During an online class on persuasive writing, I chose the only topic that wasn’t boring - climate change and deforestation. I thoroughly researched and wrote an essay and submitted it to the teacher.
A few days later during homeschool, I watched some NAT GEO videos on climate change. Then, I listened to Greta Thunberg‘s speech at the United Nations. I know she’s in high school and has done a lot. But I still wondered how I could do anything.
It took me awhile until I realized I could share my essay and get other kids to help plant more trees. Or just spread the word about what we can do to help with climate change problems. So, I sent my essay to some homeschool co-ops and asked them to share it.
I’m still sending out my essay, hoping other kids will get involved. I’ve shared my essay with some environmental groups, too. And I created this website to get more kids involved in helping save our planet. It’s our future!
