" I am very excited to be a part of the 2021 Millennium Fellow, over the next semester we will make improvements to the world through our hard work. I am excited to plant trees all around Texas and Encourage others to do so in their own back yards. I look forward to improving my leadership skills by working with our team and communicating to create a better tomorrow. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Plant The Future
The main goal of this project is to plant 1000 native Texas 1000 and inspire others to take climate action. We will be raising awareness about the problem of deforestation and climate change through educational posts on our social media. As well as promoting trees as a viable solution for the sequestration of excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere which contributes to climate change. A Growing Investment will encourage participation in tree-planting events, and eventually, develop a framework that will allow volunteers to host their own planting events. Through collaboration with local companies like Home Depot and Lowe's and fundraising events, we will purchase or acquire the trees and document their use. This will be a transparent process so donors will be able to see the trees purchased and planted on our website.
