"My name is Christopher Carnes and I am 15 years old. I will be going to be in 10th grade at the South Fork IB program. I started my interest in the environment in the Team Green Program in 4th grade. My love of the environment has grown to include helping to accomplish the global goals. One of the Goals I am passionate about is Global Goal #4, Quality Education. This goal is important to me because I believe that education is the base for everything. If you have an education that can help achieve equal rights and if children are raised with an education, they are able to have a job, end poverty and raise a family with zero hunger. I am also passionate about global goal #14, Life Below Water. I am truly appalled that sea creatures, such as turtles being harmed by human actions. I am also a Student Teacher at Visionary School of the Arts and love to use my art skills and creativity to make piece to educate people on how to make a change. I am also Treasurer of Class of 2022 at South Fork. I love being part of Students4H2O and empowering the students in the community and around the world to make a change!"
“My name is Tyler Daniel, and I am fourteen years old. I will be entering the Lincoln Park Academy IB program. My concern for the environment started when I moved to the Treasure Coast in third grade. At this time, I learned about the blue-green algae crisis and its detrimental effect on the community. With the accumulation of new knowledge, my passion for protecting and conserving the environment grew. I am dedicated to achieving Global Goal 3, Good Health and Well – Being. It is important to ensure healthy lives and advocate efficient healthcare for all at all ages. Also, I am passionate about Global Goal 13, Climate Action which is an undeniable threat to our entire civilization. Through education and innovation, I believe we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet and promote greater prosperity across the globe. Outside from Students4H2O and school, I enjoy playing volleyball and spending time with my family and friends.”
