" The future of our world depends on our daily approach to nature, to change the current trend of what the world is facing for instance climate change and its consequences requires projections into the future and taking necessary actions.
I am so happy to find myself among young leaders who share such vision as a milenniun fellow who strive to give our generation the opportunity to save our dying world.
Personally, waking up everyday and reading from the news disasters, famine, water scarcity and ailment as consequence of our own actions compels me to work restlessly to tackle these issues. "
