I’m a 14-year-old homeschooler now in my Freshman year of high school. During an online class on  persuasive writing more than 3 years ago, 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 knew she was in high school at the time and that she had done a lot to raise awareness about the climate change issue. But I still wondered how I could do anything.

It took me a while 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 realized that I could share the information I learned  about climate change with even more  students .  It's our future and each of us can be part of the 'ripple effect'  - starting a chain reaction of change in our own communites - no matter how old we are.

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! This is a call to action: Share your thoughts, comments and ideas on climate change  by sending me an email.  A discussion by students for students on environmental issues critical to our generation can help educate and inform others and, perhaps, inspire them to take action.
