I am passionate about intersectional gender and environmental justice, with the increasingly devastating impact of crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic and climate crisis, exacerbating existing inequalities. Studying a dual Bachelor of Science (Ecology & Conservation Biology)/Global Studies (International Studies), I seek to support youth agency and respond to gender and environmental justice challenges through co-produced community-based action. I believe in activism that centres the voices of frontline communities, who are disproportionately affected by climate change, at all levels of decision-making and in plans for adaptation. Through cross-boundary collaboration, I believe we can support a sustainable region and respond to interconnected global challenges.
I am committed to community engagement through voluntary roles as a non-profit organisation youth leader, mentor for social inclusion, and community renewable energy junior consultant.
