I believe that youth can make a change in the world about the environment. We can speak up for ourselves for what we believe is right and what we believe is wrong. We can make changes in the world by stopping the footprint of pollution on the Earth.
We should go green in every aspect of our lives: this is how I believe youth can make a change in the world.
Carpool with a friend to go to school or just bike. Find green alternatives for what you normally do. The next thing you know is that going green starts becoming a habit and a normal part of our everyday lives. I am helping with this change by encouraging people at my school to do this.
I have been involved in volunteering with the community at a very young age. I have participated in many fundraisers inside and outside the school. I even volunteered for organizations that only accept candidates older than me with the assistance of my family! Volunteering with all these organizations made me a successful candidate in all aspects because I am well organized, hardworking and cooperative.
I play an important role in the community by inspiring other youth to volunteer. This is important to me because I think age is not a barrier to volunteering!
I love volunteering because it is my passion and my pride. Volunteering is the only thing that keeps me moving all day. Without volunteering I would never have anything to do. I like volunteering because you give up your time to help others. And in the end you feel proud that you helped someone and it is a good deed.
I want to convey a message to all youth by helping out and being a practical example – if I can do it, then you can do it too!!
