I am a first-year at Colorado College studying film and journalism. I grew up in Macon, GA and moved to Austin, TX in 2013. After the move, I learned about climate change in school for the first time. I quickly realized that this was a serious issue and spent more time studying it.
I believe that telling the stories of the lives of everyday, average people, will make it easier to see their perspectives. My goal is to use the stories of those who study or who are affected by climate change to spread awareness of the effects of it and to generate empathy towards those affected.
